For this third week of Season Two’s Refashion Runway Competition, the theme is peplum and I had the perfect thing to use…
So this thing is a bit large, but I really
like love the fabric. I love the floral print and the fact that this fabric doesn’t wrinkle. (Did I mention how much I hate ironing?)
I decided to make a mullet shirt with an added peplum.
To accomplish this, I used the same technique as I did in my high-low dress refashion.
First, I folded the shirt in half, matching up the side seams.
Then, starting at the front (middle of the shirt), I made a cut and right before getting to the side seams, I started angling the cut downward toward the middle of the back of the shirt, making sure to end the cut at about 7 inches from the bottom of the back.
(Sorry, the picture that was taken after this was cut out vanished.) 😦
Once my blouse was transformed into a mullet top, I trimmed the bottom of the shirt into even strips…
Since the back of the shirt is slightly wider than the front, the front panel is smaller than the back.
No worries though! I wanted a one-piece peplum, so I sewed the two strips together…
Next, I attached the peplum to the shirt, making sure to match right sides together…
After that was sewn on, I was done!
Pretty cool huh?
And it matches my purple skinny jeans perfectly! Woot!
I’ve been having so much fun following and sewing along with this season of the Refashion Runway Competition! I’m just blown away by all of the amazing talent and I hope you all tune in and vote for your favorite each week!
Have a great weekend! 🙂
