attache blouse: easy, cute summer peplum top

As promised a very long time ago, here is the Attache Blouse (Simplicity 1666) I made in one of our fun, summery prints. I really love how it looks and feels when I wear it! It’s very comfortable and flattering and can even be dressed down with jeans or with cute shorts.




This is a really quick, easy pattern, made particularly quick and easy because of the kimono-style sleeves (hurray, no set-in sleeves!). I used an invisible zipper because I think it’s the easiest zipper to sew and I like the clean line it gives. I’m really happy with how how this top turned out.

Have you tried this pattern yet? I’d love to see it, if you have. I just took a look at the Lisette Flickr group for the first time in a while and was pleasantly surprised at all the wonderful sewing that’s been showing up there! I want to feature some of your projects, so watch for them here over the next few weeks, will you? I’m so impressed by everything you’re making!

Ooh that top is lovely on you! 🙂 I think I’ll try an invisible zip with my next attache dress. 🙂

I made the top last March with a matching skirt out of dotted cotton from your first spring fabric collection. It is so flattering and I get complements every time I wear it. Wore the top with the skirt I posted on the Flickr group together with a gray lace cardigan jacket to a luncheon yesterday – it was the perfect outfit.
