This is my first challenge I've entered!
I made a 1950s style day dress in cotton, fully lined, with a lower ruffle for fullness, and boning. 
It's pretty hard to see the details but the most upper part of the bodice is sew pleats as well as pleats under the bust and on the waist. 
I was going to make a jacket to go with it but I ran out of time!
I get to wear this to a teaparty themed bridal shower tomorrow!  So excited!
Enjoy!
