What advice would you give someone starting this project? Mixing different fabrics might give a different result than you think. I used jersey and woven together... did not really work all that well.. but it looks nice on the photos :-D

What type of fabric did you use? It appears crisp, very nice work! I'm wanting the peplum to drape... it may with a stretch lace fabric

The top it self is woven fabric. The neds was totally different fabric and that is where it went a bit wrong. As that trim is kind of stiff jersey/stretch. And that is why it looks crisp. If you look at the draping on the images withouth the whit edge, you see it drapes fine. So yeah, choosing same tipe of fabric for the ending I think is important. Do woven there also, is my suggestion. How I did my binding/edges... well I did them double.. so I drew extra length on the pattern and then cut 2 pieces which I sew togheter and then attached to the peplum body. Not sure if this was is a good way of doing it... I think perhaps not. It was a lot of hazzle when attaching it to the peplum and getting that sem look good on both sides. I guess a better way would be to attach it on inse first and then on the outside... Or just simply extended the binding as single layer. Hope that made sense. I guess conclusing is... don't do what I did :-)
