I am loving the peplum fever this season! When I saw this pretty peplum top and skirt set on Burda’s 08/2012 issue, I had to run to the fabric store immidiately!
I changed the neckline and did bodice alterations to fit my upper half better (I ended up adding side darts). I love the shape of the peplum because it covers my behind nicely ;)
I also LOVE the pencil skirt…it tapers down and it is very flattering!! A nice, basic skirt to wear with everything I made so far this summer!
Plus, my husband LOVES this outit so I think it’s safe to say this is a trendy outfit men can love, too!!
