Pattern Review - Penny Peplum Jacket

I had the privilege of testing the Penny Peplum Jacket from Peek-a-Boo Patterns. This jacket is part of her fall collection which will be released in the next week or so. This is a hoodie pattern that can be made with a ruffled band along the hood, or without if it's not your thing, and has a short and long sleeve option. It has a cute peplum on the bottom. It can be made with fleece or knit.

Since I am a sucker for ruffles and peplum's I was all over this pattern in a hot second. I decided to make a fall jacket so I chose the long sleeve option. I used fleece for the main fabric and I used knit for the ruffle, cuffs, peplum, and the lining of the hood/buttons. I thought the fleece would be too bulky in these areas. After I finished the jacket I knew knit was the way to go and fleece for the main bodice and sleeves.

I was too lazy to go through my stash so I went to Joann's to get my fabric. Since pink and polka dots are two of my daughter's favorites right now I narrowed the fleece down to one fabric. I just chose a knit that matched. Luckily for me the fleece was on sale for 50% off SCORE. I had a hard time finding buttons so at the last minute I decide don this simple white ones that I found at Walmart.

My daughter was a good sport and modeled it even though it was about 106 degrees on this day. She even found a pinecone during the photo shoot, it's still sitting in her room right now.
