Pleated long sleeved dress
Pretty stitched pleats decorate the front and back of this wintery dress.
The pleats go right from the top for an old fashioned look and are held in place by a mock belt.
The back has a pretty curved bodice panel. The pleats are only on the skirt.
A pretty bow finishes it off.
Long sleeves, decorated with pleats, are elasticated for ease of wear.
Making up suggestions:
This example is made in blue Nani Iro flannel and banana yellow cotton from France Duval Stalla.
I can also imagine it in a fine grey flannel with an ivory belt for an old fashioned little girl look.
And why not in white linen with a belt to match the theme colour of a special occasion?
