I made this last summer, its a very simple dress but one of my favorite garments ever made.  The fabric is a medium weight taffeta which holds very nicely the shape of the pleats.

It's a beautiful dress (as always)!
I love the neckline and the pleats and the colour looks great on you too.

Lovely colour and shape. Did you draft this yourself or make it from a pattern? I've been looking for a dress pattern like this!

I just can't pull off looking stunning like some people, lol. I feel awkward, which makes me act awkward. But I do very much love this dress. You did such a great job, and the color is perfect!
