Peplum Business Wear

This is a fabulously HOT Monday! What a great day to showcase a few classic pieces. A Do-It-Yourself (DIY) knitted see-through turquoise peplum top and DIY khaki pocketed skirt is featured.

The princess-seamed peplum top was created using Simplicity commercial pattern 1425, view D. The top has a zipper closure and crop sleeve. The crochet acetate fabric was easy to work with paired with a purple cami underneath.

The khaki skirt using Mccalls commercial pattern M6757. Some alterations to the waistband were completed  for desired fit. The welt pockets were rather complicated to install also but overall the instructions were not extremely difficult.

 We added a few accessories including a wood and turquoise beaded necklace and handmade large paper glossed earrings.
