I adore this pattern. It has beautiful feminine touches and I love all the options so you can make several of them and each look different. It is so flattering on everyone. Another winner from SUAT.

I love this pattern! I’ve made 4-5 already! I love all the different options. The gathered back is my favorite. A huge draw of this pattern is the fit. It’s fitted through the bust and then flows over the parts that I don’t like to show.

This is my most favorite top pattern now. The fit is perfect and this looks super stylish while being a super easy and fast sew. I’m close to having 1 to wear everyday of the week now 🙂

This was my first time every making or wearing a peplum, and I’m in love! It was really fast and simple to sew, and I love how flattering it is on all of my mommy lumps! 🙂

This pattern has given me a huge confidence boost. Not only do I feel more capable making clothing for myself, but I also feel more confident in my body thanks to the way this top fits. The instructions are written well and make it easy to make amazing clothes that fit well.

I have made 2 Mary Peplums so far, I love how many options there is as well as how well they fit and how quick to sew they are

This is a wonderful pattern. It’s the first time I’ve truly loved a peplum on me. I’ve admired them for a while and tried another pattern that just didn’t do it for me. I’m so glad to have tried this one. It’s a keeper!

I knew I would love this shirt when I designed it but to have it actually come to life is incredible! I think it looks good on just about everyone. I love how fitted it is through the bust and how the peplum flows over my less then super model mum tum. Shirts with those details are hard to come by in stores so Mary Peplum is a fabulous pattern and a really quick make! I have several, have several more planned out of SimplybyTi Fabric and have made some for my sister and have another planned for my mother. I have worn these with jeans, leggings, skirts, trousers in all sorts of venues from a professional setting to at home with my kids and find so much joy in looking lovely and also being comfortable-this shirt is a wardrobe staple for sure!

This is my first peplum and it certainly won’t be my last! Love all the options and it gives the illusion of a small waist on my chubbier rectangular body. It’s a simple and pretty quick sew and I can’t wait to make more.
