Garment sewing: Marigold peplum

You thought I'd left you, right? I know, it's been a long time. Life, my friends, life. But let's try to get back to some of what's been going on behind the scenes. This has been a summer of wardrobe sewing, and it's been so fun to expand my closet (or refine it) with clothes of my own making.
One of my favorites is this Marigold peplum (pattern by Blank Slate Patterns), which I made back in June.
The fabric is an older lawn from Cotton + Steel (Hatbox collection). I adored it from the moment it was released, but it sat in my stash for quite a while before I could commit to cutting into it. When I stumbled onto the Marigold pattern, it seemed like the perfect fit, literally.
And it turned out to be just that. This fabric (my first time working with a lawn) sewed up so beautifully and was a breeze to work with. It's lightweight yet sturdy and oh so soft. This is also a wonderful pattern. It's very clear and smart, and the fit was spot on. I did not make any modifications. It will definitely be on my list to make again, maybe in the dress version next time.
