It seems as if peplums will be in for a very longtime. I find peplums to be tantamount to elegance yet fun and playful.
I use a lovely knit fabric to make a peplum blouse and a pencil skirt. The top has eye catching pleats on the shoulder and waist. The back has a metal zipper and the neckline has a round collar. An asymmetrical peplum is attached.
The skirt is just a simple pencil skirt with 1" elastic at the waist.
I love it and plan on doing a few more peplums:-
2 1/4 knits
Pattern of the Week
