Sew Along Announcement!! Pamela's Patterns Pretty Peplum Top


Last year, we hosted a Reader’s Pick Sew Along, where we featured New Look 6097, a knit faux wrap dress. It was a lot fun and had about 12 participants. This year, I’m excited to announce that we will be hosting a sew along for Pamela’s Patterns Pretty Peplum Top! You will be sewing along with me as I create the peplum top and additional instructions on how to make it into a skater-style dress. Pamela will also be giving her expert advice along the way too! At the end of the sew along, we will have a drawing for a $100 gift certificate to Fabric Mart AND a $30 gift certificate for Pamela’s Patterns! This will be a random drawing, so all you have to do is submit a photo of your finished top!

If you’re interested in participating, email us at fabricmartblog@gmail.com and let us know you will be participating! I'd like to get a head count before we actually get started. 

Then get your supplies together:

- Pattern – Pretty Peplum Top (pattern available on ourwebsite or on Pamela’s website.)
- Fabric - 2 1/4 yards of your favorite knit to work with. (We will have a post about selecting knits, but you can start picking out fabrics that you like.)
- Thread to match
- Stay Tape
- Basic sewing notions



The sew along will run through the month of February. The actual sewing time will only be about two weeks, but we will give you plenty of time to catch up and finish your garments before the due date to win prizes! Watch the blog for more details! This should be a lot of fun! I can’t wait to see everyone’s peplum tops!

  1. When I click the link to your website to buy it I get a message that it is unavailable. Will it be soon? I want to join in, but I need to know where to order it. I know I can from the pattern website, but I would ( of course! ) put in a fabric order along with the pattern if I can use FabricMart. (cheesy grin inserted here!)
