♫ ♪ Parallels

As you know by now I love simple comfy dresses so I wanted to try pattern #115 from Burda 07/2015.. Since I discovered a fabric store where I can find solid color rayon, I simply want to play more with making interesting details.. Making pleats is not new for me.. You can see that the idea comes from this dress , but I also used it on this shirt ..

This time I had enough fabric for making my idea come true.. I calculated well to have 8 pleats on front part of the bodice.. The back piece of the bodice I made from one piece.. I don’t understand why in the instructions the back is made from two pieces.. The back seam doesn’t have any function since this dress doesn’t need a zipper.. The skirt is made from 2 gathered rectangles.. First I finished the hemline, and then I started making pleats until I got to desired length.. There is an elastic at the waistline to give a shape to this dress.. I didn’t make cap sleeves..
