Mix it up peplum top / George & Ginger

Fall is definitely in the air here (although I think Summer will make another appearance this weekend). So I hurried to pull out this fun top I sewed up over quarantine and really didn’t get to wear because it didn’t pair well with my more casual home attire of sweatpants and stretchy shorts. This is George & Ginger’s Mix it up dress, another version where I made the mini peplum skirt length for a tunic look. I paired it with jeans and some fun thrifted shoes and felt pretty fancy after seven months of working from home!

For this version, I didn’t line the bodice but instead added a simple neckband.

I also skipped hemming the sleeves and did a rolled hem on my serger.

I used my projector to cut this top out so all in all, from projecting to wearing this top took me about an hour. I think it was a good investment of my time, don’t you?

Check out my original blog post where I sewed this pattern for the first time and shared the details:
