So why wait. Here we go!
1) A blouse pattern with a peplum.- You may have a store bought pattern or a self drafted pattern.
2) Paper to draw the new pattern on. Is must be at least 10 inches longer and wider than the existing peplum pattern.
3) Stationery - Pencils , Scissors , Scale
Here is the summary of the procedure. Refer to the text below to get the complete details.
Step 1 - Place the peplum pattern on the new paper. I used the skirt of the Gunmetal dress.I could have used the burda blouse which has a peplum too. Make sure the seam allowances are removed.You can add them to the new draft later after step4.
Step 2 - Extend the side seam line by 6.5 inches. I found this length to be optimum.ANything longer might result in long tails at the sides, which might not be very appealing.
Step 3- Mark the end point of the newly drawn line as A. And the end point of the Centre Fromt line as B. Join A and B.
Step 4 - Cut out the pattern from paper. Add seam allowance all around except the edge which will be placed on fold.
Step 5 - Cut out from fabric and sew and create your own versions :)
