Description

I made this dress from a cotton blend knit fabric I picked up the other day. I used a simple pattern and cut the bust 2 1/2 times wider than called for to add the pleats. I ended up taking several inches off in various places to get the correct fit. I think it still needs a few minor fixes, but I was so excited to get it done in one day!

    Thanks so much everyone! :-) I could do a tutorial on the pleats, but I don’t know if I have the best technique, I made it up as I went along to be honest!

    Great fit and fabric!! I’d love to see a how-to on the pleats if you ever do it again.
