A Marigold Peplum

It’s Thanksgiving week here in the United States and per tradition we’re in Texas visiting Edwin, Samantha and baby Timothy.
This trip I packed more fabric to become garments then actual, wearable, finished garments! ...I think that means I am a true sewist. lol 
Between sewing and napping (mine and Timothy’s) there has been plenty of time to cuddle and play with my nine month old nephew.

Why do I look so weird in this picture?? o_O

This is the same pattern I used for this dress HERE but the peplum option. 
I’ve been learning so much about fitting the last couple of months (...even weeks!) that I realized there are some fitting adjustments that need to be made before the next make.
The bodice (above the elastic) needs to be lengthened about an inch and I need some more room in the shoulders, upper back and arms for a comfier wear. 

One vacation make done! I wonder how many more I can do??
