Pattern, Softly Pleated Dress
The Softly Pleated Dress is a feminine and figure flattering style that gives a nice waistline illusion - or "essence of waist" - and hides any hip and tummy "scallops". This style is a lesson in proportion - the dress looks great on a wide variety of figures when the waistline, soft pleats and skirt width are in the proper places - and Pamela's Patterns will show you how it's accomplished! The neckline features a choice of high scoop or square styles. Multiple sleeve options, including cap, three quarter, long and ruched make this dress seasonless. Made from a knit fabric, it is easy and fast to construct on a sewing machine or serger.
Pamela's Patterns are designed with the most common fit alterations built right in - high round back, forward shoulder, full bust option, extra hip/tummy room, and a great fit in the neck and shoulder.
