Welcome to my blog! I created ‘The Ravel Out’ to capture my makes while I unravel my sewing ideas, one stitch at a time.

Ravel (out)


  1. unravel; untangle.

  2. undo (twisted, knitted, or woven threads).

Layered: Peppermint Peplum

I started off my week with a new handmade polka dot peplum top. And the best part? The pattern I used is free and so easy which is perfect for a beginner sewer. Who doesn't love free?! It's actually a summer top but I layered it and plan to rock it during these cold seasons. fullsizeoutput_22ca

The Peplum pattern can be found here. The instructions were very clear and straightforward. I loved working with it. Of course I made some changes to this pattern because that is what I do. This simple pattern didn't need much changes though.


So what did I do differently? I used bias binding instead of facing for the neck and arm holes. I also cut both pieces on a fold instead of the front on a fold and the 2 pieces for the back. (I still sewed the back together just like the instructions stated. It's a lovely pattern, I'd recommend you give it a try.
