Every week, with will post photos of a specific dress and discuss the various aspects on how the dress was built. A dress dissection, if you will.
I have not cut the center front into a point (yet) but I did cut the 2 side backs into a point at the edge closest to the back piece. It keeps flopping over so I'm thinking that it is too wide at the hemline. I'm going to try it on again tomorrow after some of the shortening revisions I made (sure wish my dress form had legs!)
On the pleats, don't pleat the entire side seam. Leave the bottom 6-8" or so of the seam flat. The will help keep the hem edge from angling to much. Also, this apron does not have a lot of extra length in the front, so you will most likely need to shorten the whole apron.
Yes, I shortened it by about 4" and am using the string casings we discussed over the phone instead of pleats, stopping the casing about 15" from the bottom hem.
