Esther Boller - Esther From The Sticks Pleated Party Dress - I know you care, I see it in the way you stare...

I made this dress about a month ago. I wanted to create something very retro and 1950s inspired I hand drafted this dress pattern and used over 5 yards of fabric. There were so many pleats that had to be measured and hand pressed, that by the end I was ready to be done with the iron for awhile. There are 1/2'' pleats around the top of the bodice, 1'' pleats around the waist, and 1.5'' pleats around the middle of the skirt.

If you'd like to see more photos they're up over on my blog: esther-fromthesticks.blogspot.com/2013/04/1950s-inspired-spring-party-dress.html


Also for anyone who is interested this dress is for sale in my Etsy shop along with a couple other new garments. I cleaned out my closet the other day of clothes that I will be selling so I'll keep you updated all throughout this month when new items are up. etsy.com/listing/129838816/1950s-pleated-party-dress?ref=shop_home_active

These are the looks of an angel, or some other heavenly being. This vintage-type dress is very beautiful in this postmodern age. You look absolutely gorgeous. Breathtaking beauty.
