I made this peplum top and skirt from New Look 6130 pattern. I used real leather for the bodice front inset and a thick ponte knit for the rest of the top and the matching pencil skirt. I also used an exposed metal zipper for the back of the top. I have included some inspiration photos of similar peplum dresses found on high end store websites going for $395 to $595.
