Polkadots and Pleats

Added Jan 14, 2009

Kota Kinabalu, M...






I saw this fabric at a store, hidden waaaay below other rolls of fabric. I bought it for RM2.50/meter (that would be close to 70cents in USD). I made it into this strapless dress with a pleated skirt. It’s only my 2nd try at making one, so I’m proud of myself. :D

PS: Sorry for the really abysmal background.

Material Notes

yellow polkadot print cotton

    Thanks everybody. :) For the skirt I followed this tutorial on pleated skirts. And for the top I sort of just went through a trial and error system (a LOT of trial and errors!)

    I love the shape, it’s very flattering, especially on the bust. You got the fit perfect. Did you use a pattern? The fabric is very pretty.

    And I think you should be proud! Did you use a pattern or made it up yourself? Btw I really love the fabric.
