Refer to the chart, and locate your seam measurement radius. Since we had a 37" seam circumference, we drafted our peplum with a 5 7/8" radius. On a piece of pattern paper draw two lines at a right angle.The horizontal line will become the side seam and the vertical one will become the center front / center back.

    This handy chart is amazing, thank you!! When I’ve drafted peplums and circle skirts in the past, I was calculating pi and using formulas I haven’t had to remember since high school. So fantastic to have this, again, thank you!
