Pattern: Polkadots and Summer by Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree & Co.
Fabric: White twill and Orange scrappy and happy baby #3530 by Jane Selck
It was my first time sew pleats in clothing. They weren't too bad to iron & sew. I'd put pleats in something again. Actually, I hope to (someday) make some skirts for myself with pleats. We'll see though. I got the pattern earlier this year (or was it last....) as part of a kit. I thought I'd try it out with some different fabric before cutting into the kit fabric. You have to add the seam allowance yourself for this pattern, which I'm not a big fan of. Especially when trying to do some minor alterations to length and such on a pattern I've never sewn before. In the end it turned out though. I don't understand why people make patterns without the seam allowances, there must be some reason for it, I just don't know what it is. This is the first pattern I've run into that though. I have some others that you need to add the seam allowance, but I'll just cut out the next size up and use the difference as my seam allowance, I hope that will work. This pattern however, I was making the biggest size, so that wasn't an option.
