Peplum & Ruffled Top
I used the Simplicity 1699 as my base pattern but I altered it by lowering the neckline, making a ruffled pattern for the neckline, changing the sleeves, adding volume to the peplum (6x the volume) and then dying the fabric to make it into this wine color (rit dye). You can see my process on my blog post here: http://mysewinghabit.blogspot.com/2013/06/simplicity-1699.html
