WOW-O-WOW! I just LOVE pleated skirts...but i have yet to accomplish making the pleats! Please help me! i love your skirt though! It definatley rocks my socks! hehehehe
hehe, thanks for the compliments guys, it makes me feel special. anyway pleats are pretty simple i think, the trick is probably ironing your pleats as you go so they stay..
i folded over my pleats about an inch, but on a storebought skirt of mine it's folded over about 3 inches.
i hope this picture shows the the finished pleats *you'd want to hem the bottom of your fabric before you make pleats, to make it easier*
then pin the top of your pleats and sew across so you've got your pleated ruffle and then sew it on to your waistband. it's tricky sewing the sides of your pleats together once they're sewed on to your skirt, i try to sew under the pleat so the seams hidden
the size of your pleats are up to you and you can measure them to make sure they're perfect or just eyeball it, because it doesn't really matter if they're exactly the same width. and i know there's other ways of pleating but i don't know any... i hope this made sense, and was sorta helpful, sorry it was so long... ta ta for now!
p.s. spiderman rules.. hehe.
