Pleated V Neck Dress

Added May 14, 2014

by Ellen Hatteland

Nedre Vats, Norway






I had to try this pattern :) I have been looking at several member project of this dress and I really like it a lot! I decided to use a light jersey so the pleats should drape perfectly. The jersey is shiny so I have used the shiny side for the dress and the other side of the fabric for the sleeves. I had a bit left of the dark shiny jersey which I have used for the shoulders and v-neck. I was wearing this dress on my trip in Poland :)

Material Notes

Polyester Jersey and shiny jersey.

Classic, Evening Wear

    I like the choice of the colours and fabrics: in your interpretation it doesn’t look sportive as in the magazine.
