Pleated neck midi dress with waist band

Lessons learnt in creative darts is employed in making this nice fitted dress. I manipulated darts at the neckline and have them in pleats. The bodice of the dress is lined but the lining is not manipulated ( I just omit the darts). The dress has waist shaping and a wasit band is includec(not seen in the picture though). The dress is fully lines as the fabric is light in weight. A zipper at the back but no back slit. The armhole is finished with a bias tape to give it a clean finish.
