This is a dress I made for my kid sister’s wedding. I drafted the pattern from my own block, but got inspired by the ruffles on the Burda dress 10/2010 Full skirted dress with cut-out bustline, but I changed that to pleats. The pleats go all the way to the centre back. The back is nothing special, but I prick stitched the zipper – I love the outcome of that!
