My No Sew Vintage Peplum Dress Refashion

Introduction: My No Sew Vintage Peplum Dress Refashion

About: Sheri Pavlović is the award winning DIY diva behind the blog Confessions of a Refashionista, the fabulously crafty corner of the internet packed with step-by-step tutorials for everything from groovy clothing …

I am not at all a fan of peplums.

Those weird bits of excess waist fabric do less than nothing for my figure and as my torso most definitely does not require a bib I knew exactly how I could quickly refashion this fabulous vintage polyester thrift shop discovery with absolutely no sewing involved:

Step 1:

I grabbed my Peplum victim + scissors

Step 2:

I carefully chopped off those silly side ties as close to the seam as possible.

Step 3:

Then carefully sliced off the peplum as close to the seam as possible too.

Step 4:

And my new and improved vintage maxidress was complete with zero sewing involved!
