Peplum while they're hot

Added Oct 3, 2012

Sorry. That was terrible. Anyway, I finally got in on all this peplum action with a fusion of two patterns. Lets just say plenty of confusion followed but things worked out pretty well in the end. I used the bodice of Vogue 8280, and the peplum from another pattern which sounds simple enough. Except I decided to line the peplum part because of the flimsy Nani Iro Double gauze and things got complicated! I moved the center back zip around to the side and used an invisible zip instead.

    I like the sweetheart neckline as it is so flattering and peplums are so popular this season.

    Hats off to you for sticking with it. All your hard work so paid off. That Vogue pattern is a force to be reckoned with but it is well worth it. Gorgeous and flattering top. :-)
