Excellent work! You went all out with those pleats and did a fantastic job of it all. I'm very impressed and inspired.

It's amazing that you did the pleating yourself, and that you created this dress so quickly!

Thank you ladies for your kind comments! In reply to magpie57 you can see the line drawing of the Burda pattern I used by clicking on the link that says "More Info provided by ManiMayor", just below the project thumbnail. I'm afraid that I don't know how to make it display the line drawing instead of just showing the link.

What a great KO! Wish I could see the pattern you used to see how you changed it. Did you make each pleat! WOW, what patience you have.

Lovely dress, love the pleating detail! Great job on knocking off the designer dress and using a Burda pattern to do it.

I agree that the colour you've used is a much better version that CK's. What a wonderful dress.
