For this weeks creation I have done a little before and after transformation thing. I have had this black lacy top from H&M in my bag of fabric for a while now waiting for a revamp. Never really sure what to do with it, this week it came to me (probably in a dream) to make another peplum but this one would be a little more jazzy. As the last one was more elegant. Also I dont have enough 'nice' tops in my wardrobe, most of them are silly little vest tops or tee-shirts with sharky and george on. (from a charity shope in Highbury - amazing top) Anywho this is what I did.
Here is the top, which is from H&M probably about two and a half years ago I think. Its just a bit of a funny shape and not quite long enough for a dress. Its one of those items that I dont wear but dont want to give away because it can be altered with lots of different options.
These are a couple of fabric ideas I thought would work well underneath the lace. Both quite bright so they will stand out behind the dark black.

Here is the final top. In this picture it looks a little wide for some reason but anyway I thought with the light behind it was good to see the mix from the top part and the peplum at the bottom. I will definitely have to wear a little vest top underneath I think.
What do you think? I am happy. So happy, I wore it to work last night. It went down pretty well.
More pictures to follow soon.
