Welcome to a new pattern making class, in today’s class, I am going to teach you how to make a Peplum top.
The Peplum top is characterized by the fact that it is fitted at the top and usually has a lot of volume at the bottom.
The classic blouse is usually fitted at the waistline but this can change to a lower point depending on the design.
Today’s class starts with the front, where we will use the pattern block of the bodices.
First of all, we have to adapt our pattern blocks to make them more comfortable to wear.
We also have to remove the ease in the armhole since this design does not have sleeves, I recommend that you first look at the corrective dart class.
After adapting the neckline and armhole of our pattern blocks we are going to practice a new way of cleaning up the patterns.
This technique is often used by luxury fashion brands but is only used if the main fabric is thin.
In today’s class, we are going to see a bit of theory from circular skirts, so I recommend that you look at that class first.
As always I am going to give you all the necessary measurements to carry out today’s class but remember that you can change them to personal taste or to the taste of your client.
You can easily change the length of this top to turn this design into a dress.
Remember that if you have any questions about today’s class, you can always send me an email through your student account, in the support section.

You already know that the best way to learn industrial pattern making is by practicing, so for today’s class I’m going to ask you to make the patterns for the Peplum top.
You can make these patterns at real size or half scale.
Please, try to send me photos where the patterns and their annotations can be seen clearly and precisely so that I can send you better feedback.
