This is my wearable interpretation of a disco ball. Or the New Year's ball that drops every year at Times Square. I made it around New Year's of 2011. So, I'm a little late posting it. What's new?
I just sort of made up the design as I went along. I borrowed pattern pieces from other dresses to make sure I was on target for the neck line and the sleeves. I like the square neck, but I don't like the way the box pleats at the neckline turned out. I either should have had the box pleats continue to the waistline instead of turning into gathers. Or I should have done gathers at the neck and gathers at the waist. Also, I had never worked with pleated fabric like this before, so next time I'll be more careful about keeping all the pleats nice and neat instead of opening them up and gathering them at the waistline.
