Description

My second attempt at the pleat front dress my Salme patterns. I made no modifications this time, instead using the burda tutorial on installing an all in one facing (what a lifesaver!). I prefer the dress in a solid colour, and I think it will be nice and versatile. I’m going to take a break from this pattern and move onto something else, but if I was to make another version, I think I would try it with a really drapey fabric. I bet that would be beautiful!

    Lara, this plain fabric version is lovely and I agree with you, it will be very versatile. Some pearls and it will be out for dinner!!!
