DIY + OOTD | How to Make a Fitted (Pleated) Peplum Top (VIDEO)

If I could only wear one  item of clothing for the rest of my life, it would probably be a peplum top. In this tutorial, I’m teaching you how to make a tailored bodice for any dress or top and turn it into a peplum top/two piece coordinate outfit.

To go along with the peplum top, I made a matching fitted pencil skirt for my friend Zara (depicted below). (If you want to see a tutorial for the skirt, leave a comment down below).

As a more comprehensive guide than the video, I’ve written an Instructable detailing how to draft the fitted bodice pattern which you can find here:

Insructables Post (Link below gives further tips and details).


I hope you guys enjoy this tutorial. Let me know what items you’ll make with a fitted bodice in the comments.


As always,

Stay blessed x
