The Pleated Shoulder Dress has been designed by taking inspiration from the catwalks trends seen in New York, London, Milan and Paris fashion weeks. We were inspired by the big, voluminous sleeves. Along with an Eastern inspired theme.
This pattern is best made with a lightweight cotton fabric. A floral pattern, as seen in the images below, or an abstract print would create an interesting look.
You can also follow cut lines on the pattern to make a skirt or a top version. There is a waistband pattern provided, you will need elastic for this. The top is a shorter version of the dress with a double turn on the hem.
