Hey Y'all, remember this purty little number? I found it at a thrift shop and made a yoga skirt out of the bottom portion earlier this summer. Since I still had the whole top portion I decided to make a peplum top out of it!
|Little extra in the top portion...|
|Pink Yoga Skirt|
I looked at this peplum top for inspiration.
To begin with I put the dress on inside out and pinned in the side seam and arms until I liked them, which was about an inch on each side. Once the sleeves and sides were evenly pinned I stitched them down. It is important to note here that if you are sewing on a knit that it is very important to use a stretch stitch and knit needle.

|Love how it turned out.|
