The work table today…

Today I draped some peplums on the half-size dress form. I’ve been thinking of making these for months but something has been holding me back, today everything just clicked for me and I was able to finally start.

This is the first finished peplum and it’s really beautiful. I got this fabric at Mood this summer. It has a black cotton background with brown satin stripes.

This peplum ties around the waist with a drawstring of the same fabric and on the back there are buttons to hold it in place and extra buttons inside so that you can adjust the width of the peplum at the waist.

I’m working on some in other fabrics including one from crisp white poplin with a rounded shirttail hem that will resemble a men’s shirt.

  1. They look fantastic. What a great idea to have a half size dress form to experiment on. I know what you mean about waiting for ideas to click. I’m sure its to allow time for us to make up the first trial one in our heads, to know that it will work! :-)
