Pleating – Old School Style

Ruffles2

Here I am hard at work in the Atelier working on one of many projects, in this case a wedding dress. In the above picture I am sewing a long strip of pleating onto the skirt base. It’s definitely old school, helped along by one of my many vintage sewing machines- their weight and strength ensure that there is no “drift” when sewing and everything goes on the right way the first time around.

When the project is completed, I’ll have some more pictures to show so stay tuned… 🙂
