Faux Leather Peplum Jacket

A couple of months ago I made myself a faux leather peplum jacket using the Penelope Peplum pattern by See Kate Sew.  I wanted an almost cardigan style jacket that I could just slip over a tank top real quick.  I really love the way it turned out.  It’s simple and can be worn with so many things but because it is made in a copper color faux leather it feels more stylish than just a simple cardigan.

The only thing I did to modify the pattern to make this jacket is I cut the front bodice piece in half instead of on the fold.  I also added a band around the waistline where the bodice and skirt part meet just to accentuate the peplum style a little more.  I also lined the jacket and cut the skirt ruffle part so that it would fold in half sort of like a bubble skirt.  The modifications worked out perfectly and I am so happy with the result.

I have really enjoyed sewing for myself lately.  Mom’s on the go can be stylish too!!  If you haven’t made anything for yourself this month you should start now!  I promise you will be glad you did!  🙂
