DIY Peplum Projects are here to give you a taste of this spring and summer trend without spending a lot. In fact, you can make most of these DIY peplum projects without buying "new" materials. I don't know about you but that's my kind of DIY refashion. Let's take a look at these fun and pretty peplum fashion projects, shall we?
There is a skirt like this sold by Anthropologie. It costs more than $250. But why buy when you can make your version of this pretty peplum piece? In fact, you can do what Sarah did and make your peplum skirt out of a pencil skirt that cost $2.50.
Yes, this peplum skirt was made of a curtain panel with a skirted top. Awesome, yes? I like the lacy details of this easy-to-make skirt. I don't know about the back pins but they sure add character to this pretty DIY peplum piece.
If the idea of a peplum skirt is not to your liking, you can give this shirt version a go. I love this particular DIY peplum project because it's a great way to refashion two plain shirts. You will need two to make this skirt: one fitted and one large. The larger one is for making the peplum detail of your new pretty top.
This is a great DIY peplum project for those who like having versatile and flexible pieces in their wardrobe. This is also fantastic if you want to give several pencil skirts a summer-appropriate update without changing them permanently.
Don't you just love clothing-related projects that involve no sewing at all? Also: don't you just love hot glue? Check out Natasha's blog now to see how she constructed this removable no-sew peplum. Now don't worry if you don't have a leather skirt to use this peplum with; you can easily use real fabric to make your removable peplum.
How pretty is this orange cardigan? I don't know what detail I love best: the braided trim or the dainty peplum. If you check out Kathleen's blog, you will see that the original sweater wasn't too pretty. But with a dash of creativity and accidental trend forecast (she made this in 2010!), she was able to make the cardigan look positively lovely.
Most of the DIY peplum projects we have featured above are of the plain or single-color variety. For an added touch of summer, you can use printed fabric to make your peplum skirt. This beach-themed piece is a great example. Methinks any floral fabric will do, too.
I'm sure your closet has a few dresses that you no longer wear. If one of these dresses happen to have a fitted or elasticized waistline, you have got yourself a perfect base for a trendy peplum top. You simply cut off the dress, sew the hem, and yes, you're done.
Ready to take a plunge into these DIY peplum projects? Don't forget to show us what you end up making! I'm certain you will be able to create a trendy and pretty peplum DIY skirt or top that can rival pricey designer pieces.
