Make Way.....Sexy Back Peplum

Added Nov 4, 2012

Peplum top was a big hit for Autumn and was so on my to do list but could not find the perfect material until about two days ago. I found this cobalt blue polka dot fabric and was so eager to bring the peplum top to life. Friday evening after work I went home and stay up the entire night, getting minimal or no sleep at all desperately wanting to see how it would look. After several hours and some really tired and teary eyes this is what I design, constructed and produced.

A high front neckline that leads to a sexy, plunging back neckline revealing a lot of skin.

The base of the style was inspired by the burdastyle peplum top. I modified it with my design by adding a collar, metal zipper, bust darts and cap sleeves. The bodice is lined except the front and back peplums.

The skirt is made from knits and a 1" elastic is sewn at the waistline. There is no darts or zipper just a basic pull on skirt. It is very comfortable and just perfect to go with the top

I will definitely make this style again correcting one little problem that I see, other than that I am so pleased with the outcome taking into consideration the time frame. This is good pattern and definitely a keeper.

Do you agree or disagree?

Material Notes

Laundered Cotton, 8" metal zipper

Knits for the skirt




Garment Type
Cotton, Blends
