Can you take 5 yards of fabric and make it fit a 34" waist?
I can now!!!! Cartridge pleating, (proper term: gauging,) is easy, beautiful and fun! It is so much nicer than gathering and you can really get some serious fullness in a period skirt. I can't wait to learn to do a split waist band next!
And then a little men's tailoring skills.......loving sewing life right now!!!
yes, I petted the pleats, it's awesome!!!!! It's soooooo pretty!
