Black & White Striped Peplum Top
I made another Peplum Top! This time I made it from Ponte Knit in a wide black and white stripe. I wanted a peplum top that could be dressed up a little more and this is perfect for black skinny jeans and a jacket for spring.
I followed the same pattern I made from my tutorial on making a peplum top. The only change I made was to add in a pleat in the sleeve. It looked pretty nifty on the flat pattern piece but it's not very noticable once sewn up and worn but I don't mind. It's a little added interest.
Also I concentrated really hard and managed to get some awesome stripe matching action happening on both the bodice and the peplum. Check it.
I paired it up with my Red Leather Bow Necklace to wear out and I loved them together.
Also apologies for the blurriness in these photos we were fighting against some twilight light and losing quickly. I couldn't help but use them though because there are just so many beautiful little painted laneways in Newtown.
So there you have it. Another success from my Shopping for fabric with a list challenge.
