I liked the pattern so much I made another but this is a variation. I’ve dropped the front pleated panel to create a square neckline and make the dress more pinafore style. This will mean a blouse sits better underneath.
i inverted the box pleat down the centre front and lengthened the dress by around 7-8cm,
This time the dress is in a mid grey pinstripe cashmere again by Ermengildo Zegna. I’ve lined in a pink/lilac soft lining.
