Summer dress with pleats. I have used this pattern before – I really like it. I have become quite a fan of buttons now that I have gotten over my fear of buttonholes, they’re really not so bad! I put elastic into the straps so they look all ruched and cute (and stay on my shoulders….).
Printed fabric, buttons
