2  Altered McCalls M5806 for Rehearsal Dinner in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by perlabella on: December 17, 2009 07:51:34 PM
Hey all! This is my 2nd biggest project ever! My first was this same dress for my friend's wedding (still unfinished).

This is going to be my other friend's rehearsal dinner dress. BUT, question - first, what is this "technique" called? pleated? not sure. secondly, how do I go about achieving this type of bodice from the pattern for McCalls M5806??

Here's what the bodice and midriff should look like (directly from Jim Helm):


And this is the original McCalls M5806 sketch:


I'm totally lost on how to -
1. expand the pattern piece to accommodate this "pleated-ness"
2. pleat the bodice in a similar fashion (it looks like it slants upwards on the side seams...right? not sure)

unfortunately that's the best pic of the Jim Helm dress I could find! Sad

please help! any suggestions or advice is much appreciated! Smiley
