Description

I made this last summer, but only a few days ago I took some pictures to post. It was my first try on pattern 101 from 02/2011. The skirt is from model 107 from 11/2007. The fabric is a medium weight taffeta which holds very nicely the shape of the pleats. It’s a very simple dress but one of my favorite garments ever made.

    Beautiful dress, Liliv. Love the bright color and the elgance of the pleats and neckline along with the cap sleeves. That color really suits you. You look fantastic.

      Yes!! I like it very much and I think that I’m not the only one:) It is really very flattering on various bodytypes and it is also versatile and very easy to sew, that’s why it is so popular. And yes there are so many projects based on this pattern and all look pretty.
      Thanks for looking and commending!

    Wow, that color really pops on you! It fits you to a Tee…taffeta, you say? Very, very nice. I like the addition of the white belt too!
