This versatile peplum top features 2 sleeve options; one short, one long, as well as a drop shoulder seam, perfect for beginner sewists. The pattern is designed for knits with a looser more comfortable fit. If you prefer a closer fit, go down one size. If a cute peplum skirt is not for you, choose version C for a basic knit drop shoulder top.
