This is my second Pleat Front Dress form Christine Johnson. Like all CJ Patterns, it goes together well, fits well, and looks RTW. This time, I made it sleeveless, which was very easy to do. The bodice is lined, so I left one shoulder seam unsewn, turned it right side out, then completed the shoulder seam. This dress will be great for a conference I'm going to next week. I will wear it with a white draped cardigan. After the conference, I have to catch a plane to go see my daughter. It think it will be very comfortable on the plane.
The fabric is from Sawyer Brook and is a french knit. It has a vintage feel to it and was a dream to sew on.
Below is my first pleat front dress. The fabric is from Textile Studios (I miss them!) and is one of my favorite fabrics I ever purchased. I have warn this dress over and over again! I think the pattern would look great sleeveless in a black knit.
