2015#6 – The pleated shoulder dress sewing review – O vestido com ombro pregueado: sumário


Description: Close-fitting sleeveless dress with one pleated shoulder, round neckline, dropped shoulders, waist seam, center back invisible zipper and back vent for walking ease. The front bodice is cut on the bias for a more pleasing pleated effect. Dress has neckline and armhole facings and is fully lined. The dress concept was originally inspired in a model from Patrones magazine (click here). More photos of me wearing the dress were published on my personal style blog (click here)
