    It looks so perfect. I will try to make my peplum top so good as yours.

    i love how the peplum stands up in your version. i don’t like the peplum to be floppy. what is the fabric made of that you used?

      Thank you!
      It is called ponte knit or ponte di roma or doubleknit (if I am not mistaken). Mine is relatively thick and it should be polyester with elastan.

      thank you! did you line your version or not?

      No, I did not, the fabric is quite thick, I didn´t want it to be even thicker for summer, plus it is not see-through, so I really didn´t see the need for a lining.

    That pink looks stunning on you! The whole look is awesome. I love both with and without the obi belt.

    So nice! I want to try this for myself, but I am 6ft tall so adjusting the patterns gets a little tricky! This looks great on you!

      Thanks! I don’t think it will be tricky – I managed to do it with one Burda pattern for shorter people. I have a sewing book that shows the process step by step, but I am sure you can find this information online as well. The peplum top pattern is simple, so I think you will manage without much trouble (I guess you would have to add a bit of height on the chest and a bit somewhere in the middle of the darts). Good luck!

    I just love your version – the color, sleeveless and belted. You look so good in it. Now it’s on my must-do list but don’t know how it’ll look on a 5’1" frame. Lol!

      Thank you! I suggest you shorten the pattern, otherwise it will not work well on you!

    I wasn’t sure about peplums until I saw this! You’ve inspired me to add this to my Fall sewing list for sure.

      Thank you and you should try it, I think the peplum flatters most figures!

    Peplums are extremely flattering and show off your figurre to advantage. The contrast between soft pink and black makes for a striking outfit.

      Thanks! If you noticed, the black fabric has a slightly glossy alligator print on it, I thought it makes even a stronger contrast between the top and skirt.
