Harper — Box Pleated Dress Sewing Pattern (Free PDF)
When it comes to fashion, the saying "history repeats itself" tends to be true. The styles that make a comeback, do so for a reason: they have a classic appeal and flattering shapes, just like this box-pleated dress. A staple of the 50's with its pleated full skirt, it is as feminine now as it was back then. Plus, it can be forgiving on those who have full hips and create flattering curves on those who don't.
