I wanted to give you an early Christmas present today, a FREE sleeve add-on pattern for the Penelope Peplum! This pattern is one of my favorites, I love sewing all the variations, but one thing was missing…a sleeve for cooler weather. So together with the free add-on sleeve pattern, the Penelope Peplum can keep you nice and warm (and oh so cute!) all winter long!
The long sleeve pattern works with the Penelope Peplum pattern (which now contains sizes XXS to 3XL!). Just replace the shorter sleeve pattern with this one and you’ve got yourself a new winter staple!
This dress also uses the Penelope Peplum Add-on Pattern, which includes two dress options and a second top option. This is the gathered dress.
Print out the long sleeve pattern (it’s just 4 pages!). Then tape it together like so:
The fabric really makes the dress! I had it hanging in my sewing room for weeks before using it (you may have spotted it on instagram). It’s a thick and heavy ponte de roma, perfect for winter! And the floral! I felt like it deserved a boho styling, so I paired it with a floppy hat, boots, braids and tights. Here is the fabric, you can click the photo below to see/buy/save it.
So Merry Christmas! I want to see your peplums, especially your long-sleeved ones! Use the hashtag #penelopepeplum OR #seekatesew, or just tag me in your comment or photo on instagram @seekatesew!
Oh and we should talk about this bag! Sew Caroline gave it to me and I loooove it. I love totes. I love puns. And I love sewing. Love love love, they are in her shop if you want one.
