So my sister received the peplum top! We Skyped and I saw how it fit, how it looked, and how she liked it. Here are the results:
Here are some pictures of the shirt being worn... She is hiding her face behind her phone, but that's okay. I choose to celebrate the fact that it fits in the torso and that I learned a bunch from making it!
I think I will take the bodice pattern pieces and extend them lower, with an A-line spread at the bottom, to make a new top.
(Okay, Sis, you are now free to give the peplum top to the thrift store!)
Quilting, dressmaking, and history plied with the needle...
