The One About The Polynesian Peplum


The infusion of our island cultures into our styles are nothing new. It is always exciting though to see the blend of the traditional with the contemporary.


I have not kept my love of stretchable fabric a secret, therefore its use here is no surprise. I have constantly used stretchable fabrics to avoid the use of zipper/buttons and I must say, it shaves hours from the stitching time.

The One About Peplum & Pencil

Going through the load of fabric I had come to acquire over time, I came across a very stretchable grey fabric. While I cannot recall what I had bought it for I thought of utilising it for a skirt to go with a peplum blouse that I have been wanting to make.

I did a double stitch finishing for both the skirt and blouse using a double needle.



In the past I have not enjoyed working with super stretchable fabrics, but the Singer Quantum makes stitching stretchy fabrics a breeze 🙂
