The dress was made with this Vogue V8825 pattern with the following alterations:
-Used the bodice of the pattern only. On the left side of the seam of the bodice, leave a 2″ opening for t belt
-For the skirt, cut 2 pieces of fabric 25″W x 26″L and 1 piece of fabric 52″W x 26″L. Connect each 25″w piece of fabric to each side of the 52″w fabric.
-Attach the skirt to the bodice matching the ends of the skirt to the ends of the bodice wrap.
-Pleat the excess fabric that’s left in the middle which will create about 22 pleats.
-Connect the belt to the opening of each side of the end of the bodice where it meets the skirt.
