Put a little PEP in your step and a WOW in your wardrobe with a refined, sophisticated, and slightly sultry peplum skirt! These classic styles that were once on hiatus are premiering on the runways and back on television. AMC’s Mad Men is in one word J’AMAZING! Take style notes from Joan Holloway who proves that pencil (skirts) and pen (necklaces) are a must. Banana Republic is having a Casting Call for Mad Men… I wonder if Don Draper is judging?
To create a retro-inspired skirt, reach for a curtain panel (use a panel with a skirted top). Gather, and pin top (front) to create a slight pleat every few inches. Sew and reinforce with stitching where pins are holding material in place. Flip material to the backside. Cut to desired length and hem by stitching. To finish off the back, use kilt pins to connected material. Cinch and style with a bold belt and you’ve got a perfect peplum!
