Today I am gonna show you how to use gathers and pleats as a design element on a dress.
First I would start with the pleats. I cut out a straight fabric ensuring that it’s more than I need.
Next I cut out the size I wanted. Top stitched it and added lining to cover the airstay.
I then cut out the sequence on my main dress and replaced it with the pleat design I just made.
Then sewed it together making sure all the edges are neatly done.
Time for the rose. I wanted a very large rose design so I cut my fabric on spiral cut with 5 inches interval.
for the top part of the rose I did industral locks on it, to make it neat while on the lower part of the rose I did gathers. At the end, the gathers was all brought together to form the large side rose
I looked so fab for the event that day.You know sequence always looks better with lights……and it was a nighttime event so I looked lit up 🤘all the way ✌😎
