Toile for a wrap top with peplum

The start for this project was a wrap top with darts/pleats at the shoulder and a peplum below the waist.

For that toile, we change the wrap into faux-wrap (no closure below the waist) and added value for the shoulders pleats to add more ease at the bust.

the first results :

The bust dart has been turned into 2 darts at shoulders. Some value has been added inside those darts so they have more depth. The darts have been stitched on 7 cm only to open well above the apex.

The back is simple with the unique shoulder dart (no change from the block), and gathers at waist (value of the back dart plus a little more).

Some corrections needed to be made: the crossing at center front was too wide, cutting the bust with a big diagonal. And the right side should be in front of the left side (women’s closure convention). The peplum didn’t need any changes.

Here is the result

The new toile is much better : the diagonal of the wrap is not too powerful, the neckline is lower. The gathers have been redistributed under the bust to leave the center front completely flat.

Another student is doing the same model but as a real wrap (it will close at front). It will be in a next update…..
