I have sewn a whole bunch of Pegs in various fabrics, so I whipped these up pretty quickly! This is my first Mama Lauren, and I chose a challenging fabric - so this was a little more time consuming! But still, well worth the effort - I love a floaty top, and you won't get a lot floatier than chiffon!
Because I wanted the inside to be nice and neat I used French seams - the pattern has 1/2" seam allowances, so I didn't need to make any adjustments - I just sewed wrong sides together with an 1/8" seam allowance, then right sides together with a 3/8" seam allowance.
The Mama Lauren has tonnes of options - different sleeve lengths with elastic or button tab, neckline options, top/tunic/dress, ties or not, and it is so my sort of style!
I was very tempted to sew the keyhole cutout neckline (you know - for a bit of extra flirtiness!), but then I remembered I was sewing with chiffon, and thought better of it!!
I'll definitely be recreating this outfit in different fabrics, it'll be great for lots of occasions. And next time I'll use a more stable fabric so I can try out the keyhole version!
