Leanne Marshall: Peplum Dress

Added Jun 7, 2012

by danii97

Lincoln, Nebrask...






A beautiful dress designed by Leanne Marshall! This is Simplicity 1876, view B. The fabric is a soft yellow, lightweight shantung. This took me about 4 days to complete, it has 2 peplums over a darted pencil skirt design and a sweetheart neckline, strapless bodice,14 in invisible zipper, also a ribbon type belt! I made one alteration to the of the skirt, I sewed a curve on the back seam to make it more fitted at the bottom of the skirt. Don’t mind my awkward sports bra tan line! ;)

Material Notes

3 yds of Lightweight Shantung, Polyester




Garment Type
Bridal, Classic, Evening Wear, Preppy, Romantic

    I love this pattern. I am thinking of making this dress in white and full length and adding peplums all the way to the bottom.

      No I actually only used interfacing on the bodice! :)

    You did an awesome job!!! In only four days, wow! I’ve got my eye on the Leanne Marshall dresses too – I need a dress for a wedding soon… but I’m afraid it might be a bit above my skill level still! Love yours :)
