Mamma Can Do It Relaxed Fit Peplum paired with a pencil skirt in summer or the Mamma Can Do it Fit pants for winter is one of my (new) favorite go-to dressy work outfits.
This look is exactly how I picture being stylish but also work-fancy. I am comfortable like I'm wearing a tee shirt and shorts because my clothes fit so well, but it looks like I'm dressed up for work!
The fit and look are perfect because I customized this pattern!
See my posts for those customizations:
Both above are made with my pleated peplum hack
and a half circle version in solid DBP from Elevated Fashion Fabrics and Liverpool from Sly Fox Fabrics. I added the double flounce sleeves from the Anneleine Tamera dress/top.
Pattern Stats -Maternity possible: This is one of those patterns where it's important that the waist hit you right at your natural waist or it might make you look pregnant when you're not. That is also an advantage though, you can definetly hide under this skirt for awhile and no one would ask! Consider adding a second skirt (one peplum length, one tunic length) and you can hide even longer! For longer wear, shorten the bodice and use the tunic length skirt. I recommend the gathered skirt - you can widen it to the full width of the fabric.
