Women’s Ayda’s V back Peplum Top & Dress

Sizes XS-XXL

Difficulty Level:  Beginner

This pattern features layered printing option. Instead of having to print all the sizes out, you can choose to only print the size(s) you need. This will help save that precious ink! This pattern also comes with a separate A0 file for those that like to print the pattern pieces at copy shops on large format paper.

The Ayda Top + Dress is part of a pattern collaboration with Simple Life Pattern Company. This top and dress features a loosely fitted bodice,”V” back, peplum skirt and optional flutter or cap sleeves. This fast and easy sew will look fabulous layered with a sweater or on its own for warmer spring/summer months.

Fabrics to use: Light to medium weight fabrics such as cotton, chambray, rayon, tencel or voile.

    The dress/top is very cute and simple. I like the options available. I made the flutter sleeve and gathered skirt with a 100% cotton fabric.

    However, the instructions are definitely lacking. There are no color photos or pictures, only a few very basic drawings. I think a beginner would get lost on this pattern, not because it’s a hard sew, but because of the instructions. This pattern is definitely much different than the regular Simple Life patterns (which have great pictures and instructions and are easy to follow).

    I’m petite, 5’2” and I had to alter the the bodice by shortening the shoulders (after I had constructed it, which was a pain) because my bra strap showed. I wish there were some additional (advanced) options for a zipper and/or a more modest back.
