Description

I made this gorgeous blue polka dot pencil skirt earlier this year, but recently a light bulb went off in my head……..what if I can make a removable peplum to give me two looks (peplum for when I’m having a “fat” day haha).

In my head I thought, surely it’s just the same as making a short circle skirt and adding a waistband. After a bit of googling and reading tutorials, it seemed I was thinking along the right lines.

Material Notes

The material that I have used is a 2-way stretch cotton and I had lined the skirt with a very light 4-way stretch fabric when I first made it. I used the same polka dot material for the peplum, made a very short circle skirt (loads of tutorials if you google them) and added a waistband with elastic inside to give it more structure.

Any here’s the finished result! I hope you like it as much as I do!

    I would never guess that polka dots can look so fabulous in a form of pencil skirt!
