Leather inset peplum top and skirt

I made this top and skirt yesterday to wear as an usher at Fashion Week fashion show next weekend. I had some leather in my stash I got at Tandy Leather in Portland and used a mystery thick ponte knit I bought over a year ago at Mill End for the rest of the top and matching pencil skirt. I used New Look pattern 6130 for the outfit.

I may be a little late to the peplum party, but I have found some similar dresses online at high end retailers such as these pricey ones:

I can’t wait to wear this to the fashion event!
