Pink Flamingos Rozzlyn Peplum Top Max & Meena Pattern Review

I love peplum tops, so cute and feminine whilst still being very practical.  I came across this fabric on sale in Aldi, it was originally sold as a baby blanket.  I snapped up a double sided blanket measuring almost 2 metres square for just £4.

The pattern is the Rozzlyn Dress by Max & Meena.

Here's my pattern pieces all cut out.  

Shoulder seams first.

Then the sleeves.

I press the hems before sewing the seams as it's easier to press the hem evenly when it's flat.

Sleeve and side seams.

Neckband next.  I switch to a straight stitch for this and press it flat to reduce the bulk of the seam.

Lots of pins.

Looking good!

Skirt side seams.

Pinned to bodice.

Another hem.

I stitch my hems with a twin needle as I think it makes my clothes look more professional.

Link Ups:


  1. That blanket was a great find! What a beautifully made top for an adorable little one.

  2. Very, very cute! I pulled out my serger yesterday to make some shorts - hadn't used it in many years. Made a lot of t-shirts in the day. BTW, did you measure the neck opening, then use 7/8 of that measurement? It might make for a flatter ribbing on the neckline, but make sure it still fits over the head!
