Just as a quick refresher, here is the next dress I want to recreate.
I have been thinking about how the pleats at the shoulders are handled with this dress and have two options. Like the dress below, I could add a separate pleated bertha and attach it the the shoulder and center front seams.
Or I the piece is darted at the waist and pleated into the shoulder seam, as illustrated below.
Personally, I am leaning towards the bertha because I have so many fan front dressed with gathering and pleating at the front waist, that this would be an opportunity to have a darted front dress with a nice tight fit around the waist and added volume to the top (where I need it the most).
