My Rock and Roll dress

Added Dec 19, 2012

by Ruth Meiland

Paramaribo, Suri...






This dress has been on my sewing list for the longest time!! The pleats scared me a bit!!

I’m so glad I finally decided to make it!! It turns out to be much easier than I thought it would be!!

It’s a pattern from Burda Easy Fashion 50ties look!!! I made the dress without a petticoat.
Had some problems lining up the checkers, I got a bit lost due to the pleats!
But love the way it all came together!

    I have phobias about doing pleats too for some reason. No idea why as they’re really not that difficult and you’ve done a great job.
