Delightful Asymmetrical Peplum

Added Feb 25, 2014

It seems as if peplums will be in for a very longtime. I find peplums to be tantamount to elegance yet fun and playful.

I use a lovely knit fabric to make a peplum blouse and a pencil skirt. The top has eye catching pleats on the shoulder and waist. The back has a metal zipper and the neckline has a round collar. An asymmetrical peplum is attached.

The skirt is just a simple pencil skirt with 1" elastic at the waist.

I love it and plan on doing a few more peplums:-

Material Notes

2 1/4 knits
metal zipper

    Nice fabric. The colour and texture are great. As for me, I don’t like peplums; there are not many women who look well in them but it is definitely your design and all the outfit suits you perfectly.

      Thanks Oksana….peplums really don’t suit everyone that is why I design it this way. I am not a big fan but this one really works for me

    Hi you did a very nice job creating this dress. You are right, the fabric is most unusual and is very interesting in terms of the effect of light on the fabric pattern. Congratulations!!!

    Wowzers kisses!! This is fabulous. The blue is lovely on you and i do love your hair. The two pieces are fab to-gether, i love pencil skirts as they’re sexy and sassy but still elegant. You really suit the peplum and i’m sure all eyes where on you in this lovely classy outfit. I had to re-do my dress project as i tried adding more photos and lost the origonal project , only ME lol x
