I get ya.. just lay the pattern over like a smocked block. Yeah that would work and wouldn't require too much brain..... hmmm.....

I'm getting a bit excited about this now LOL... I just got her some gorgey mary janes and she totally neeeds a new winter dress to match :mrgreen:
If only I didn't have actual boring sewing work to finish first :morningcoffee:

You can never really take control of your life but you can control how you choose to live it.

They have a few other dress patterns with pleats
oh yeahhhhhh.. I have been drooling over that for sooo long. Everyone really rates her patterns. I always get put off by the price though. Maybe I should just suck it up and spend some money for a change 8-[
Where did you buy it from?
I think I bought it directly from them. There is a shop in Auckland that sells them, where I first saw them, but I ended up buying online as it was cheaper.
