Description

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.

    Wow!! I love the leather look — you did an amazing job! It reminds me of an outfit from Cupcakes & Cashmere (http://cupcakesandcashmere.com/fashion/back-to-black-3#feed=/search?keyword=leather%20peplum… but she clearly spent way too much money *wink*wink*). Kudos to you! :)
