I've finished the peplum top from last week, and I love how it has turned out!
I used the bodice from Simplicity 4070, view B, for the top, and added a simple circle skirt to it.
I've worn it out once already, on a date with Dave to the cinema (Looper, btw, is pretty awesome).
Fabric: A heavy cotton I was given as a gift, about a meter and a half
Notions: One black zip, 16"
Challenges: I was pretty much on my own with the attaching of the skirt and of the zip. The zip is open ended, which is a first for me, but i just treated it as a dress zip and it worked out great! Also, still having issues with sizing, might be about a size too big- but I think that's just because I cut out the size too big.
Hours: Aprox 3
Cost: £1.15 for the zip
Do it again?: Yeh, I love this style top, and I'll totally make it again, but am considering having a go at making it smaller!
Thanks for reading,
