Rush Hour Blouse

A peplum blouse and princess seams sounds like a great combination, so I went to work on it with just a few changes.  This top is  high waisted and I am not!  I had a RTW top which had what I described a drop waist and then the peplum, I loved that top.  The Rush Hour Blouse seemed like the perfect pattern to try this option.  Plus, it has such a fun peplum with that front overlap.

This pattern is  for multi cup size, A/B, C +D which is such a plus for the pattern selection.  I used the A/B pattern pieces and went with a size 12 but next time I will size down to a 10 possibly an 8.  I did take this size 12 in at the side seams.  My main change was adding three inches to the length to get the look I wanted
