Old vintage t-shirts get a preppy pick-me-up with this peplum top tutorial brought to you by Boat People Vintage.

In this nifty DIY project, any old t-shirt will do, but as the cool Calvin Klein example proves, a really interesting vintage top will make the end results look that much better and more stylish. An oversized tee is necessary in order to have enough fabric to get the ruffled peplum bottom that works to create a flattering hourglass figure for the wearer and makes the waist appear much smaller.

This amazing peplum top design tutorial demonstrates the popular desire for high-fashion pieces at low costs, a concept that makes all DIY projects so much fun.
