I received a request on how to make this dress.  I did the example with a straight side seam but you can use a slight flare in the side seam.  The pleats also create flare.  Looking at the picture I think the pleats start 1 inch below the natural waist.  For the draft I made the pleats 8 inches.  The picture show slightly different panels in the bodice.

I love this look. Going to a destination wedding end of May. Good inspiration to try to make. I'v e learned to relax with my sewing and enjoy the journey and have much success. I've decided this year to be a little more adventurous with my sewing so this would be a good little challenge. Thanks Karen for posting.

Good perspective, Maria. I have been working part-time in a tailoring and alterations shop for nearly two years. Every garment that comes across my work table is unique in its construction. That's because of the thousands of factories across the world where each has its own system of construction practices. I was afraid of botching things up at first, and ruining some guy's expensive suit. But then I learned that a seam is a seam. You can most always redo that if you are careful. And never, never cut anything away until you are sure. Once I realized those things, I could relax and have some fun. I don't work on the gowns, but my colleague across the hallway does. She says the same thing. Each gown is unique and presents its own challenges. That is what keeps us interested and challenged.

How lovely. I've seen this style in the shops and wondered how to achieve the pleats. When you show this, it looks quite easy.
