Greensleeves Dress

Added Apr 14, 2012

London, United K...






Princess seam dress made using Simplicity 1913. The pattern calls for gathers at the waist but I made pleats instead to continue the lines of the princess seams on the bodice. Made in green linen-look cotton with candy cane silk lining. More pictures and info on my blog :)

    Very nice ! Love the colour, it looks great on you, and love the buttons ! You definitely did the right thing by using pleats instead of gathers, makes it looks more elegant !

    WOW! This is gorgeous! I can’t imagine this dress with gathers; I think you made an excellent choice with the pleats. I’ll bet that lining is super cute too.
