Happy Hump Day! 🙂
This week’s wannabe is based on this pretty silk peplum blouse by Piperline.
Teal is my favorite color, and I love the relaxed look of this top!
I just knew I could make a copycat from this:
First, I made a couple of amputations:
I’m close, but not quite there yet! Those buttons just don’t match the clean & uncluttered look of the original top. Before removing them, I placed pins between each one to keep the front placket nice and flat.
With the buttons removed and the placket pinned, I sewed the front down with a zigzag stitch twice. This covered up those buttonholes. 🙂
Almost done! With the newly shortened length, the pockets from the original romper peeked out. This would not do, so I shortened them a good bit.
Now that ooglay romper is a cute peplum top that looks a LOT like the original!
I rocked my new top over to Real Mexico for a delish dinner with friends!
