This dress is a Vougue dress I made back in high school. I love how the pleats were created from sewing-out the white and black squares, making black and gray stripes around the waist and for the sleeves. Cutting this out was a challenge but worth it in the end! Evey check lined up perfectly. The original pattern called for a cut out lace boarder right above the hem line, but I decided to go without.
