Title: Pin-up girl peplum top
Post by: Miss American Pie on July 09, 2014 04:35:12 PM


I wore this sundress for my college graduation (4 years ago now, yikes!). I was really thrilled to find out it fits me again, but I was not thrilled with how short it was in back... so now it's a top!

Just a simple cut and hem situation. It tapers to be slightly lower in the back (mullet/hi-lo hem?). I made straps out of the leftovers to give it a fun retro pin-up girl kind of look.

Now I just need to find a boy to buy me an ice-cream soda down at the drugstore...

You certainly deserve an icecream soda ;D . Very nice top, and a good idea.

This top is so pretty. Makes me think I should consider recycling some of my too-short dresses.

I agree with whoever said that it looks better this way. It's probably more versatile as a top. I think adding the straps was a smart move. nit looks really good on you.
