Front Neckline Pleat Dress with Side Gathers

Added Aug 26, 2013

by kisses

Kingston, Jamaica






This dress is partially lined with front neckline pleats. The skirt has raised waist and has side gathers at the front and the back. The style reference number B5752 is from designer Maggy London who design for the woman in mind. She certainly was because it fits me like a glove and I am so loving it. I didn’t have to alter nothing,it was perfect.

I wore it out and paired it with one of my favorite shoe colour. Happy Me :-)

    A woderful dress, it has so many nice details! I like the pattern a lot, too. You look very lovely: both elegant because of pattern and playful because of fabric; and, of course, red shoes are the best choice for this outfit.

      Thanks Martin…I love making clothes so I challenge myself to do one a week to wear out. I am an outdoor person. If my project gets featured that is extra bonus which make me extremely happy but I like the trill of making something new each time. Quiet time means sewing time :-)

    well you’ve done it again kisses, i adore this dress and its fabulous on you. i would be proud to have this dress hanging in my wardrobe as i can picture myself in it lol. your style is so much like mine and i hope i look as good as you!!. the pop of colour with your heels is eyecatching as well. This patten i am going to get. When i get round to sewing it is anyones guess as i have loads of patterns i hav’nt tried yet lol. To many fab dresses and not enough time. I’d be ok if my daughter did’nt give me a list of things she wants made thats as long as your arm hahaha. Her favourite sentence us ’how long will it take mum ’ lol x

      Thanks Mary …it is a good pattern and it will so suit you. My list is also very long but someday I might be able to sew it off. It is very good that you have a daughter to sew for one day I will certainly have a little girl to dress up and she will appreciated me sewing for her as your daughter do

      I know once you have a child he/she will be the best dressed just like you. I keep telling myself i’ll catch up on everything on my to do list but them new patterns come out and burda does do some fabulous dress patterns so i’m always behind lol x

      Mary that is the exact thing I keep telling myself. I am so behind too but I am not worrying about that because sometimes it is not who first put it out but whose version is different and the overall fit and how it suits you not to mention the fabric choice. Take your time Mary we really cant keep up if we have a job to go too
