I want to make a polka dot dress and do some interesting things with the dots. Whats the most flattering style of pleats for bigger gals?

I have the same issue, but some styles can look really flattering. I'm giving you skirt examples, but I imagine they could easily be changed to suit a dress. If there's a separate yoke and the pleats are small, like in this one:

it's a nice, slimmer silhouette than most of them.
Another, sexier, style is stiched-down pleats like

I really like that second style because it can balance you out if you're heavy on top, like I am.

i think i'll try a line and big flat pleats (not too many) and get some extra fabric incase it looks hideous.
big thanks xx
