To get started, you'll need a few different patterns. The top is See Kate Sew Penelope Peplum Top Sewing Pattern and the skirt is Delia Creates Pleated Pencil Skirt Sewing Pattern. Additionally, you'll need these two Penelope Peplum add-ons from See Kate Sew for the finishing touches - Circle Top Add-on and Free Long Sleeve Add-on.
The instructions on how to combine the patterns is very easy to follow. As you can see below, there are only 6 simple steps, each with clear illustrations and written instruction.
Most knit fabrics with stretch (i.e. Cotton Jersey, Cotton Lycra, Ponte de Roma) would be perfect for sewing up this peplum dress. You can experiment with different prints or solids, but as it is officially Fall, I suggest starting your search with some of our plaid knits. A few of my picks from the store:
