I scored this embroidered denim muumuu at the thrift store for only $5. I loved the boho chic look with distressed embroidery and washed out denim. I briefly toyed around with the idea of making this into a dress since there was so much fabric but settled on making a peplum top as I don't wear dresses as much as I used to.
I chopped the dress at the midriff and reshaped the armholes and sides.
I reshaped the sleeves and kept the original hem.
I sewed the sleeves and bodice together to fit my small frame.
I cut off 11" off the bottom of the dress and gathered it to make the peplum.
With right sides together, I attached the peplum to the bottom of the blouse.
Yay, finished top! Here's the front . . . .
. . . and here's a view from the side.
