When it finally debuted on the website, I was on vacation and I wasn't following Madewell new arrivals but when I saw a review on life as a cat, I called the store and asked them to put a Medium on hold for me.
The fabric (100% silk) is rather thin but not see through or clingy. Peplum is subtle and lays flat but creates nice waist definition. I never though a peplum top would work for me. In fact, when I tried J.Crew peplum blouse few months agi, I thought it was laughable.
I was always afraid that a peplum would create a bulk in the midsection but I think it actually works here and it is rather slimming. Maybe it is because the proportions are better, the fabric is thinner and there is not too much gathering at the seam.
I had slight problem with sleeves being a bit puffy and too wide at the elbow. It does not look like that in the pictures, but I thought they would look better if they were a little bit narrower. If I'd purchased this top, I think I would alter the sleeves (which should be super easy).

Peplum flower topin coral pink was definitely NOT on my list and I can probably substitute it with something already in my closet, but if I catch it on sale I will definitely be tempted to buy it. I loved it with skinny jeans but I can see it with capris or a pencil skirt. In addition, I liked the sleeve length because it is harder to come by than a sleeveless shell or long sleeved blouse.
Flowersketch Peplum Top is currently sold out on the website but seems to be still available in stores. It is priced at $108.
