Folded Peplum

I am trying to replicate this look for the peplum on a dress:


I have the peplum cut out, but I can't figure out how to do this look with it... I'm not even sure what you would call it to look up a tutorial. Any ideas?

Sadly the only time I've seen this done is on curtain...my mother was all about DIYing hers when I was growing up.

So, and I may be wrong, but to me this looks like someone took a very large half-circle/oval that is then pleated in towards the middle. And there must be some SERIOUS interfacing in those pleats(or buckram).

But if you really want a tutorial maybe a pleated valance oval curtain treatment? I should probably poke at the youtube to see if anything like that even does exist.
~I've gone to look for myself, if I should return before I get back keep me here!~

Sanity Check
Costume list 2009: Finished 17 initially planned :: 15 completed :: 6 moved to next year
Costume list 2010: Started 6 from '09 :: 9 initially planned, now up to 22 total

Ooooh a curtain/valence tutorial might be the way to go. Thanks for the suggestion!

It looks like the inner parts of the pleats are hidden, if you find you can't get that drape right with a whole piece of fabric, considered that it may be heavily interfaced and pieced at the dipped portions.

Also, my brain had a moment of GA-WHA~?! when I clicked the link. They're so perfect....oh Disney.


And I remembered that I know someone who used to work in a Disney costume shop, I'll ask her if she's had any contact with a similar dress or that dress and if she might remember how they made it. I'll get back to you!
