This is a peplum dress made from knits. And contrary to what you might think, it flatters even those of us with large hips and thighs.

The key is finding a knit dress you like to use as a pattern.

The video instructions are SUPER easy to follow. I made it with 3/4 length sleeves and used a frankenpattern to match the armholes.

It takes almost no time at all.

I used a forest green cotton blend that I've been hoarding for years - about 2-3 yards.

I'm not sure I need another peplum dress, so doubt I'll make it again soon. But it gave me the courage to start knocking off other knit dresses I love.

Did you make the belt? It goes perfectly, as does your necklace. Very classy dress.
