Once upon a time there was a lovely princess bodice. The seams of the princess bodice were fine and fitted and the shoulders were not pinched. The princess bodice wanted to meet a prince and marry him, so together they could be a dress. Walking in the woods one day the bodice met a peplum. The bodice didn’t want to be with a peplum. The bodice had her heart set on a skirt with pockets and a full flounce. But the princess remembered a childhood story about how the peplum was often overlooked in favour of the skirt. But the peplum had real qualities of its own. It was shorter, lighter, just as fashionable and loved by princesses from all over the world. The princess bodice settled for life with a peplum and they all lived happily ever after.
