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?
