I added 1" to the bodice, might add another 1/2" next time. The big change is an exposed zipper in the back. I really like how this turned out. zipper picture
I used this video to help with the "how to"
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would sew it again. Check the bodice length before you sew it.
Conclusion: I have tried to buy a peplum top in RTW but they are all too short-waisted. Finally, I got around to making one and I am thrilled with the results. That is why I sew - to add something extra and to get the garments to fit me right. Plus, I just love it!
