Just incredible!

For the petticoat--I've heard that type of pleating called 'cartridge pleating', is this the same thing?

did you use rats in your hair? The plasticy netting ones or the stuffed stocking kind?

Sorry- leave it to the wigs girl to question the hair! I love how it all turned out (especially the hair lol)

I LOVE playing with rats - that's why I ask Smiley

I would say it is cartridge pleating taken one step further. Instead of doubling over the fabric and then gathering it, it is done near the raw edge. The waistband is then attached one side at a time. No thread ever goes completely through one side of the waistband, through the fabric, to the other side. The raw edge of the skirt is completely encased in the waistband.  Normal cartridge pleating takes a fold and sews it to a finished edge, like the piped edge of a bodice, and not every miniature pleat is done individually, but more or less done in groups of two or three.

I can't get rats to work, myself. No rats in this hairstyle ^^. No fake hair at all, actually. Thanks for the compliments!
