Pleated petite dress

Pretty straight forward pattern. Dress is indeed fitting. I suggest measuring the back panel piece against a current pre existing fitted dress to give you an idea of how big/small it would finally turn out to be. Pattern pieces no 8 & 9 were a waste of my fabric because they were never used.

Cotton from Dubai

    i think you look great, and the dress is not too short at all! show off those gorgeous legs! :o) i am also 165cm tall so seeing how it fits you is really helpful. thank you for posting!

    Your dress is lovely. I like your fabric choice. Its great to see the first self sewn version of the dress. I’m thinking about making it too :)

    Thank Ü! I am 165 cm tall, so dress is indeed a bit short. I have no idea how to lengthen the pattern though.. It would be great if material is of some stretch.

    what a nice dress that fits you really great. I want to try this pattern too, but I am not sure how to change it for normal size ( i am 168 cm tall), with all those pleats in the waist. But your is looking great. :)
