Thanks! This was a gift, so I hope she feels like a princess sleeping in it. You don't need a pleater. I did the front first without the pleater and the back with the pleater (someone lent me one) and they came out about the same. It was just a little quicker with the pleater. I also did a lot more basting of the pleats than I probably needed to do. In the drawing the pleats appear to be stitched down so I was preparing for that.

I love this! Great results. Do you have to have a pleater to make this? I really want this pattern. Thanks for reviewing it.

How cute, I like Folkwear patterns but don't have this one in my stash, I might have to buy this one.

I agree - super pretty. I bet you feel like a princess sleeping in it.

A very pretty garment, well worth the effort you've put it.

That's really pretty. Nice job.

It's a pretty gown as is, and I suspect that if you do it again, understanding that it WILL take a lot of delicate, fussy handwork, you will be happier with the finished product if you use fine, fine cotton batiste or voile--or this 2.6 oz/yard hemp/silk blend, of which the copy says, "If this fabric was human, you'd want to marry it."

It looks lovely. This is a fussy pattern with all of the pleats!
