My first attempt at this Vogue 8815 peplum top was my first post for Mood Sewing Network, you can see it here on my blog. I like this top but since it has been washed a few times, it is very short waisted and the darts don't hit in the right spot.
I added one more inch to the body of the top, added and inch to each side of the center front on the peplum so I could pleat the peplum and I adjusted the darts.
Here was my inspiration top, I loved the pleats and the belt. Love your skinny little waist too!
From my pinterest board
I used a snakeskin knit from Fabric Mart, which still is in stock and a great price.
I might like my top a bit better without a belt or with a wider belt. I am so straight without much waist definition a wider belt might be better
You can see in this picture my belt won't stay in place.
I do like the pleats in the peplum, a bit of a change and this will be a great top to wear under cardigans and jackets.
