|Wool Crepe Pleated Dress 108B|
While skimming through the Wall Street Journal I came across an article / pictures of the hottest trends for spring...........and this spring it is all about pleats. (Life is so full of serendipity. ) I fell in love with this Suno Boxy Pleat Top, but not the price $550. Check it out:

For real, come on $550 and the blouse is not lined and is a mix of mostly poly with a little cotton. I understand a little bit of poly will keep it from wrinkling but why should the blend be more poly then cotton? Anyway, my goal is to recreate this blouse using cotton sateen for the shell fabric and lawn for the lining. Fortunately I have a bodice (which is already adjusted for me) that matches the Suno Boxy Pleat Top. Check it out, (V8894).
