Modification Mashup - Crossover + Peplum

Ready for a fun mashup of the Crossover dress and peplum?? Because really...these two were just begging to be made together. Bonus? Printable pattern pieces for girls and ladies to be able to do the midriff banding. Because Jodi is just that awesome.

You can download the pattern piece HERE for free -- seriously, all sizes
(girls nb-14 AND the ladies xs-xxxl)
For this top you need the new Mix and Match Crossover top (women's or girl's), the Classic Sleeve (women's or girl's), and the Peplum top (womens or girls). (Although to be honest, it would be super cute with a skater skirt (womens or girls), too!!)
Ready for the super fast cutting and sewing? Because it really only takes MAYBE an hour to cut and sew the whole thing! You could make the whole thing with one fabric, mix it up with two fabrics like I did, or even make every piece a different fabric for something really fun and funky!
Cut out the mix and match crossover bodice.
Cut out the band for the middle using the free pattern.
Cut out the sleeve to the desired length.
Cut out the peplum.

Sew together, hem and bind as you desire! Voila! It takes almost no time at all!! And the end result is so fun and cute!!
