Smocked back dress

I sewed this dress as a gift, and I really like how it turns. The pleats are nice and there are pockets. I modified the placement of the straps in the back, and I had to take off a little bit from the sides, mainly because I should have sewn the lower size.
Here on my blog (in French).

Material Notes

Sateen cotton.

      Thank you ! I usually don’t sew shirt dresses because of the collar (it’s not my style). But this one with the straps is effectively nice !

    Très jolie robe! Je conservais ce patron dans mes favoris en attendant une vente à rabais de Burda… Maintenant c’est certain que je vais la faire – elle est trop belle, j’aime surtout les doubles bretelles et les élastiques au dos.

    Very cute, and I like the smocked panel in the back.
