Yes, white jeans after Labor Day! Not wearing your brilliant whites after Labor Day is a defunct style faux pas anyway. Plus, I've always had a rebellious nature!
It's unbelievable how much I love this time of year. I guess it's because I'm a September baby! Autumn is just in my DNA.
It's that perfect weather where you can get by wearing a long-sleeved top and not necessarily a jacket. And a perfect day or this top.
Just as I previously said, with the last three peplum tops I made -- I knew I'd be making a long-sleeved version of Vogue 8815. And I can guarantee this is only the first one for the long-sleeved round.
With the exception of adding a inch to the length of the bodice, this pattern sewed really well out of the envelope. I made it in a black ponte knit from Hancock Fabrics this time. I really think I bought the whole bolt because I still have plenty left. Aww... what to make next time? LOL
It's no secret I'm completely and utterly obsessed with exposed zippers. Maybe one day I'll grow weary of them. But that time is no where on the horizon.
I decided to add my pearl embellished Peter Pan collar necklace. It's an excellent contrast to the black top.
And I polished off the look with another pair of Shoe Dazzle studded pumps in black.
