Hi! I found this lovely fabric in black, camel and purple. It looks like something between suede and velvet but it isn't stiff, it drapes nicely. Off course I bought some meters of all the available colors! With the purple I made this pleated dress, which I swear is much better in person:

Cute dress. Looks great on you.

Did you draft this yourself or did you follow a pattern?

I really like that! It is very flattering on you, too!

The fact that it is purple means it can do no wrong. I love purple!  Grin

That's beautiful.  I love the pleats - they really suit the color and drape of the fabric.  You're amazing!

Great looking dress!  The fabric looks very luxurious...and it seems to be holding the pleats well!  That pattern gives a nice shape, too...I love it!
