The Inverted Pleat Tutorial

Wednesday, February 22, 2012
Here's a quick & easy way to create some movement & character in a garment: the inverted pleat. 

Measure & mark evenly on your fabric.  Make note of the fabric pen...I will plug it later.  I LOVE THIS PEN! :)

Mark how far you want to stitch.

Don't forget to backstitch.

Four pleats complete!

Ok, the pen plug:


Gone!!  I find it so amazing!  When the clerk at the local quilt shop demonstrated this, I couldn't believe it.  Remember those fabric pencils with the brushes on the end (are those still around?!)?  We've come a long way!

Alright, back to the pleats.  Iron and you're done.
