Looking through catalogues I was struck by the number of peplum blouses. I thought it would be fun to design one. The peplum is worked separately in garters stitch with short row shaping. Stitches are then picked up along the cast on edge of the peplum. Increases are used to shape the bust line. Worked in one piece to the armholes, the blouse features a button band in the back.
