Happy Monday friends! Since everyone is lovin' peplums this season, I thought I'd bring out this top. I made it in 2009 by combining three different patterns and posted my results on the BurdaStyle website {link to my project}. They liked my top and then published my picture in Burda Moden June 2009 magazine, however it's all in German!

PS - aren't these the cutest tights? I found them at Target the other day!

I am always in awe of people that cansew their own clothing - especially when it looks as amazing as that blouse! It fits you like a glove - great job!

Love the tights too. Perfect way to transition to spring without going directly to bare legs :) I'll have to check them out at Target!
