The basic dress pattern worn at a longer mid-length cut, embellished with a pleated ruffle at the hem and at the neckline. Cap sleeves. Construction stitching done on the machine, pleats basted together on the machine, then everything finished by hand.
The pleat is constructed separately from the dress and then machine-zigzagged onto the skirt. Then I hand-stitched a narrow strip of jersey down the middle of the ruffle, using a beaded feather stitch.
The neckline has a slightly smaller ruffle basted down, and then the finishing strip is aligned with the bottom edge and hand-stitched down with embroidery.
