This is my entry for the “Member Model Challenge: Pleated Designer Dress”. I like the pattern’s shape and seams and pleats placement and want to showcase it with a striped fabric. The fabric is a 50/50 cotton/polyester, with some body and reasonably wrinkle-resistant. I want to de-emphasize my shoulders so I lay out the patterns pieces so the stripes of the side front pieces run up & in and add a side back piece, changing the back dart into a princess seam. I also want to emphasize my hip: the skirt’s stripes run horizontally. I also added a “waistband” and match the stripes accordingly so they’d form a chevron pattern at center front and center back.
I have more more details and photos on my blog.
