How to Make a Peplum by Kristina

Thursday, March 07, 2013
Peplums are a huge trend right now, so I though it high time to show you how to smarten up your act by creating an on-trend peplum blouse using only a cropped top and half a yard of fabric. You can match the colors as I did for this project or make the peplum a different color entirely. That would work really well using black and white. The main thing is that your peplum length flare gently over the hips -- it shouldn't be any longer than six inches. So, update a cropped top with a flattering peplum to create a fashion piece that will glam up the most hectic of mornings.

  7. You know what? I reckon you could even take this a step further, & sew the peplum as removeable piece- to wear over a normal-length top!

    Or maybe even elongate the peplum to become a detachable 'skirt' (in the same material as the top), so that the top can even work as a dress on days that require more hip/ thigh coverage?


    Ooooh, soo many ideas! =D
