Hi Everyone! This week I have a PDF handout for you, you can grab it in the SWC Bonuses Section. It's an excerpt from my Sewing book and includes a step by step tutorial for forming knife pleats, box pleats, and a fun practice project incorporating the knife pleat.
My best advice with pleats is. - practice, practice, practice! Play around with a few of the methods shown in the videos last week to determine which pleating method works for you. You can use both knife pleats and box pleats to add interest and variety to many different types of designs!
Week Two Task:
Next Tuesday - Part 3: We'll go deeper with hands-on demonstrations.
Be sure to watch the videos posted last week, there were several posted. I've included them down at the bottom of this post as well, just in case :)
