    This is so pretty! You should really consider putting up directions so all of us can take a stab at it! Well done!

    I love this! I totally agree…not enough garments in the world with peplum. I own 3 blouses and 2 jaunty little jackets with peplum, and of course they are among my faves.

    Great job! Any chance of instructions and a pattern?

    really beautifull how you manipulated the darts position to create this effect with the darts. The peplum adds even more beauty to this piece! Great job!

    Excellent balance of the stripes, especially around the dart areas. Cordially, Nehmah

    This is an adorable blouse! I hope you pair it with a red pencil skirt ;) The darts, the buttons, the entire shape-its just perfect.

      I did. I draped it first using muslin, and then created the pattern. I have made it twice now, once in the blue and white and once in the red and white!

    Cute! It reminds me of exercise in a pattern drafting textbook I have. It looks great and I love the peplum.
