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.
