DIY: Leather peplum top

Hi all, I've been busy working and getting my shit together, 2012 has literally flown by and there's so much stuff I promised myself I'd do at the beginning of the year that I still haven't done. As per usual I've spent a sizeable chunk of my time playing with fabric, the most recent result being this leather peplum top I made the other day.. had intentions of wearing it to a wedding next weekend but the thought of having to femme it up fills me with dreaaaad so I'm probably gonna dress it all the way down till the seams come apart because I'm kind of in love with it!
I used a basic top pattern to make this and chose not to hem it because I'm lazy but check this video out if you're thinking of making one of your own!
