Lemon peplum top

Added Jan 30, 2014

by Nikki Brooks

Washington Dc, U...






This top was made with the same bodice pattern used on these two dresses here-http://www.beautejadore.com/2014/01/diy-perfect-little-herringbone-dress.html and here-http://www.beautejadore.com/2014/01/diy-little-black-and-leather-brocade.html which is the McCalls M5927 with the following pattern alterations:

Cut a 2" angled insert on the top of the shoulders
Cut the front bodice down the middle creating two pieces
Cut a scallop V neck in the front bodice
Faced the entire top
Added an invisible 23" zipper
Added a peplum by cutting 2 pieces of fabric 11" wide by 25" long, cut one piece of the fabric in half and baste the seam closed. Sew the back pieces to the front piece. Sew the bodice to the peplum using the side seams and the back seam as a guide. Attach the remaining zipper to the back peplum seam and pleat the fabric between the seams creating a pleated peplum
Added a 1"peplum band
