This little mid 40s peplum dress was made back in April.Does the fabric look familiar? I had just enough of the checked rayon blend that I used for :this dress":http://www.flickr.com/photos/elegantmusings/4720030523/in/set-72157594494752755/ –I love using every last bit of material!
The pattern is Simplicity #1435, which a friend sent to me! I had been eying several peplum patterns on Ebay from the 40s at the time, so it was one of those happy coincidences that she generously sent it to me. I actually love both the views–the Peter Pan collar version with the bow belt is still on my list of “things to sew one day”, but obviously, the peplum version won out first! I love how flirty the peplum is; I wasn’t sure I would actually like it (I like to minimize my hips rather than play the width up), but it’s my favorite part of the dress. Better yet, it’s detachable, so I can swap it out for a belt if I like.
