Two days ago it was 40 something degrees, rainy, but you could see the green grass. Yesterday morning I woke up to this.....
So what do you do when you're snowed in? Work on projects. I've been wanting to make a peplum top, but I have no pattern, so I searched the internet for free patterns. I found a few tutorials, but they weren't very clear, as least not to me. So, I did what I always do, I winged it (wung it?, wanat it?), whatever! I made it up as I went along.
This is the result:
I didn't have enough fabric to cut the peplum on the bias, so I tried to match up the plaid, as you can see, that didn't turn out to good. I also I used the pattern for the blank canvas tee and made my own peplum, but I couldn't figure out how big to make it, so I just made it as big around at the natural waist line and flair out like an A-line skirt. I think I should've made it a tad bigger around the waist, but then I didn't want gathers. I think I'll look for better instructions on how to do that and if the snow doesn't clear soon, guess what I'll be doing?
