In cases of great dilatation of the stomach with no obstruction to the outlet the slack of the walls may be gathered up by pleating and so permanently secured by suturing.
A good example of the camisia of the 12th century is the rochet of Thomas Becket, preserved at Dammartin in the Pas de Calais, the only surviving medieval example remarkable for the pleating which, as was the case with albs also, gave greater breadth and more elaborate folds.
Here is a two dimensional slice through the TeichmÃ¼ller space of the twice punctured torus drawn with some of the pleating rays.
Embrace simplicity and choose dresses that boast softly feminine details, such as fabric or lace overlays, slight pleating or perhaps a very slim line of ribbon or thin beaded trim.
A high-end girls' winter dress coat will sport other nice details, such as a ribbon and buttons on the back, and flattering pleating to accommodate a frilly party dress.
