This cute little top is easy to sew from the Sugar n Spice Dress pattern.  Buy it in my Etsy shop. The pattern bundle also includes the dress up accessories! This pattern is also available sized for WellieWishers and Animators Dolls.

 

Make your dress into a Peplum Top with this easy variation to the pattern. This tutorial assumes you have a basic knowledge of sewing.  Please refer to the pattern instructions for more detail, as well as the pattern pieces.

  1.  Cut out your pattern pieces and fabric for the bodice, lining, and sleeves.  Add 1/2 to 3/4 inch to the bodice if you want the peplum to sit below the waist.
  2. Instead of a wide skirt piece, cut a shorter skirt piece as the peplum.  For the 18 inch doll size, I used 2 1/4 inches by 28 inches.  The longer your peplum, the fuller it will be.  For the 14.5 inch Wellie Wishers dolls, I cut peplums at 2 1/2 by 15 inches (ladybug) and 1 3/4 inches by 17 inches (holly).
  3. Follow the pattern directions to make the top, using the peplum piece instead of the skirt piece.

Enjoy these amazing photos by Pam Ray of Amy Violet’s, who made the cutest peplum tops for her Wellies and sells the outfits in her shop. Each set is paired with a Sixth Grade Skirt, with the added pockets as shown in THIS TUTORIAL.  She also used THIS TUTORIAL to add the front placket with a little lace!  Nice touch!  I just love to see how others stitch up the patterns I created.

    This is really cute! Do you call it Sugar N Spice because it is made with the fabric brand “Sugar & Spice Textiles”?
