Now you need to add seam allowance to your peplum. Mark the horizontal line as your side seam and the vertical line as center front. Add seam allowance to the side seam and inner curved line. Add hem allowance to the larger curve. The center front is on fold, but for the back add seam allowance to the vertical line. If you want your peplum to be longer in the back, simply extend the length of your center back and blend curve. Remember to always keep the side seam measurements the same.
