Pegged Skirt Using New Look 6107
I made the peplum top from Vogue 8815 about a year or so ago, and have been intending on making the skirt from New Look 6107 to go with it ever since. Well I finally got around to it. I thought that a pegged skirt would look better with a peplum top and after doing some research I decided that I didn't need to buy a new pattern, I could just use this one to adapt. I took one of the versions hanging in my closet and pinned the sides, starting below the hip, to a total of 1 1/2" in from the sideseam at the hem on each side. Well this was clearly too much pegging - I could barely walk! I then tried halving that to 3/4" each side and that was perfect. After pegging it I had to take it in 1/2" along the whole side seam to drop a size since I have lost some weight. All in all I am very happy with this outfit. It can be worn as separates or together like a dress.
