That blue dress is absolutely beautiful. I just have no other words. I want it. (I really wouldn't mind having the figure that could wear it too!) Is there a better close-up of the pleating available? Or even a shot of the underside? Does it look the same inside or was the whole thing stitched to a layer of something else? So curious.

Hi Becky,

The pleats are stitched to a layer of underlining. Because the underlining is white, you can see the small stitches on the underside. Does that answer your question?

I'll see what I can do about getting a close-up image of the pleats!


An amazing designer with undeniable talent and creativity.

Beautiful! I own a Sybil Connolly dress that I am trying very hard to date and get an approximate value on. Anyone on here that could help?
