I was in the process of making these Vogue pants and peplum top by Simplicity and decided I wanted to make an outfit to see Eric Roberson, Lala Hathaway, Tweet, and Ruben Studdard in concert April 19th. I ran across this black and white cotton sateen at Wherehouse Fabric a month back and could not pass it up. Actually, I left the store without buying it then can back the next day and bought a few yards of it. It was originally supposed to be for a dress and as you can see I had different plans.
I made top E with the following alterations:
-4 inverted box pleats instead of pleats from pattern. Two were in the front matching up with the waist darts, then two pleats on each side.
-6 inch zipper instead of buttons
-Self drafted cut out in back
-Pink elastic across back
The pants needed 2.5" added to the length
