This took me about 90 minutes to complete. I love peplums because they are so flattering. I wanted to try something I'd seen on Pinterest, but wanted to work with what I found. The full tutorial is on my blog, but I put in darts to taper the waist and used part of a second shirt. Now I've got another project in mind for the other shirt and can't wait to see how that pans out.

This is lovely and thanks for the link. As it happens only yesterday I was looking for how to do a peplum.  Sometimes Craftster is so serendipitous.

Thanks and no problem. I too learn from crafters all over the place. It's faster having a serger, but not necessary.  

Thanks to everyone as well for the kind words
