So clearly it isn't your standard macaron dress. I decided to go with something different and try to make it into a top. I have been wanting a peplum top for a while so I am pretty stoked with the outcome of this project.
The fabric was an impulse purchase from Spotlight one day. I went in for a meter of ribbon and walked out with a couple of meters of this fabric as well. I mean, come on, who can resist bulldogs! It is a simple printed cotton poplin. The black is some leftover black cotton from my stash.
To make the peplum I drafted a simple half circle skirt. Once I had the majority of the bodice made I measured the bottom of the waistband and used this as my measurement to draft my half circle skirt. Then all I had to do was add it to the bottom of the waistband.
For a little extra detail I also added some black piping to the waistband. This was my first time doing piping and I was super nervous. I pretty much just winged it and thankfully it turned out ok. The only other addition I made was to add a simple pleat into the top of each sleeve rather than gathering them into the bodice.
