DIY Houndstooth Peplum Top

It’s gotten to the point where my belly has completely taken over.  Most of my tops now have a bit of belly sticking out below which is so not cute and many others are simply getting way too tight.  I then remembered my trusty Vogue V8815 which have made many alteration appearances here here here and here.

Thinking about what fabric would be perfect, into my head popped this gorgeous rose and white mini houndstooth fabric from moodfabrics.com.  This fabric is a 2-way stretch that sews perfectly and doesn’t wrinkle easily.  It is definitely one to add to your stash!

The following pattern alterations were made:

-Removed 4″ from the bodice front and back
-Cut the back on the fold and eliminate the back zipper
-Created a faced deep V-neck
-Cut two pieces for the front bodice
-Added a 9″ side zipper
-Faced the back neck
-Added a 15″x54″ peplum
