DIY peplum top from XL tee-shirt

Inspired by the circular skirt tutorial I did a couple of weeks ago, you can use the same technique here to upcycle a large tee-shirt into a cute peplum top. Get the seasonal hit silhouette for 3$ :)

Material needed:

-XL tee-shirt
-Scissors
-Measuring tape and sewing machine

    Great tutorial! Did you have to re-sew the tank portion of the shirt (with the logo) to fit along the seams? The tee seems much larger than the finished tank. Thanks!

    I’ve been wanting a peplum for ages but the style is so formal and so I couldn’t quite justify spending time to make something like that when I prefer t-shirts and jeans. THIS peplum is right up my alley and I’ll be making it real soon. Thanks for the idea and the tute.
