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!
