||I started with a Simplicity vintage pattern with an extended neck ruffle similar to my inspiration dress. The pattern is sized for stretch knit so I enlarged it to make sure I could get it on. I eliminated the side pockets, pleated strips of fabric and placed them strategically. Although the inspiration dress is embellished to below the hips with pleats, I did not dare add more volume! Also I tried the serious pose like the model but thought the pictures looked much better with a smile!
