I got inspired to design this dress when I saw another dress with a pleating detail that I liked. I’d been wanting to sew a dress made of warmer material with sleeves in order to keep me warmer during the fall and winter coming on. This one does just that, that because the material is tripled for each pleat it keeps my core even warmer.
As always, 100% hand-stitched.
