Plaid pleated dress

Added Mar 29, 2013

by liliv-1

Athens, Greece






For this I used model 101 from 02/2011 only for the bodice and replaced the gathered skirt with a pleated one (model 107 from 11/2007). I’ve made this compination many times because I prefer the pleated skirt on my bodytype, plus the pleats are easier to sew;)
I think that the result is cute but I’ m thinking to add an underskirt to give some more body.

    I like the dress and I like the celected fabric, it always looks winsome, makes youngish look. Agree with pleated skirt choice! For those who have sexy curves it fits better:))

    Lovely dress. I had same idea that fully gathered skirt didn’t suit my body type. So, I always choose pleated or A-line style skirt.
