Today Teresa is sharing a beautiful version of the Marigold…in every instance I’ve seen of this pattern, the fabric just makes the look! Be sure to check out her lovely finishing too.
Hey all! And happy new year! Teresa here from Dandelion Drift to show you a new wardrobe staple I made with Melissa’s pattern!
This is the Marigold pattern, which has so many options, but I chose to sew it with cap sleeves in the peplum length. I debated what fabric to sew this pattern with, but landed on the lightest little Robert Kaufman voile in white. I knew this fabric was super lightweight and super sheer, but I also knew that is exactly the type of shirt I would reach for in a store, perfect to layer of a cami!
I made just a couple changes to Melissa's pattern. I french seamed all of the seams, you know, just so it looked nice and tidy inside and out! (The above photo shows you the innards....pretty huh?) I also omitted the elastic at the waist. I wanted this to be a loose flow-y peplum.
I love how this top turned out! Here's a quick glimpse at the details:
Pattern :: Marigold, size small
Fabric :: Robert Kaufman voile
