Breaking Ground – Love Notions Margot peplum

I was so excited when I chose my next project, I had always dreamed about beautifully fitting peplum (I have never owned one!) and because of that chose my longsitting pattern Love Notions Margot peplum. This project was fail. At first – I messed up with my differential so I got lettuce hems (And my sewing machine needs to be serviced so I can’t fix it now.. ). Next thing, it had extremely wide sleeves! I took in 3cm total from each sleeve and they were still wide! Next time I’ll definitely take them in before sewing it together… I chose the easiest version for my peplum (swing skirt), but now feel that I maybe should have chosen pleated skirt. I would have loved long sleeves, but I was tight with fabric. And then I managed to screw up my neckband.
Pattern: Love Notions Margot peplum (Afflink)
Fabric: Stenzo black CL (95%/5%) 220gsm
Price paid: fabric – 16€/m pattern – 5.37$ (bought during sale)

I think that with this pattern it might have been easily my error of sewing.. And fabric choice.. If you have any ideas how I could avoid being so frustrated next time let me know 😉
Feel free to enjoy my latest sewing failure! 😀
