bridal gown pattern

Hi I was wondering if anyone can help me.
I am looking for a bridal gown patern with a pleat inset at the back which
will continue for a train. I have looked through all the usual pattern books
but no joy.
Hope someone out that can help.
Kind Regards
Jacquie

I re-designed an old Vogue pattern for my DD's gown, and added an inverted pleat front and back.
Simplicity 4731 has an inverted *front* pleat, but apparently not a back pleat. Vogue 2788 does have a back pleat, if the rest of the style works for you (empire waisted princess-seamed dress). Butterick 4452 is a two-piece dress with a pleat in the back of the skirt. Butterick 4228 is also two-piece and has a pleat in both the front and back of the skirt. Butterick 4843 has a back pleat in the skirt (view E).
HTH,
Beverly

Oh, nice job, Mom. She looks gorgeous - you must be very proud. Did you do the BMs as well?

Thanks! It was a dream job. Karen and I spent many hours together in the design and selection of fabric stages. Her older sister and I spent hours sewing on all the Swarovski crystals. The gown won a couple of ribbons at the OR State Fair last summer:

Yes, all the attendants were required to use the same purple satin, (the flower girl had periwinkle) but DD encouraged them to select their own individual design, and I created patterns, and sewed the dresses. A few of them won prizes at the Fair, also: Flower Girl:
