As in my first batik peplum top, I did mention that I will make a few for myself and this is one of them. I had some batik fabrics in my stash and did not know what to do with them. I feel that this is the perfect pattern for them. The shoulder is wider apart by an inch (boat neck, at but not off shoulder) to give it an illusion of a slightly smaller waist (because mine is just too big! ;P), and darted instead of pleats (which can make me look rather ample!). I I like that it has a 50’s look to it. The ties are two-toned and the peplum length is 8" instead of 7". ….A few more to go….:)
