Gee, a peplum! It's been YEARS since I've worn one of those. I used to love them, though, and I totally agree that this gorgeous design would hide a multitude of chocolates sitting firmly on the hips, haha! Peplums give any garment a lovely feminine look and they're very forgiving. Gotta love them.

This is a beautiful dress. Am petite so sometimes shopping can be frustrating when I finally see something I like but it's several sizes bigger. I love how she turned this oversize dress into this chic peplum dress. It requires some intermediate skills to alter the dress but it's totally amazing. I wish the project had a video tutorial to help you make the alteration.
