Originally my idea for my bckram top to was have a peplum attached but when I came to experimenting with making the peplum I found it very hard and eventually impossible to create the peplum shape I wanted as the buckram fabric is very hard to manipulate and change without ruining its look. So when it came to making my final piece I decided to take out the peplum and add more to the top half. I wanted to tie in my lace knickers appearance with this top as they go together in the same outfit. with my lace I make the same pattern as the top to make one single fabric, with a pick lining to show transparency.
I extremely happy with the outcome of this piece and feel it is the feature piece of my collection.
