I used this lovely fabric that has imprinted small flowers that is made out of suede all over the fabric to make a self draft skirt with peplums. It is a straight skirt with an asymmetrical shape at the front. I them cut three peplums and place two at the front and one at the back joining them together at the sides. Zipper is enclosed at the back
I combined the look with a very easy 10 mins top….where I used 1 yd fabric and cut it in two equal lengths and join it at the sides where it conforms to my body. I then sew it together leaving space at the top where it is directly underneath my arm. The top is rolled hem to give a more professional finish. Two small tucks are place at the ends to give he effect of sleeves. So very easy and I am loving it.
Overall I think the look turns out great :-)
