Pleating is an art for all it’s own and our Lily Absinthe gowns are famous for them. Did you know that each kind of pleat has it’s own construction process? this is from a gown from late 2014 that I made showing lined origami folds, next to pipe-style box pleats, topped with basic narrow edged knife pleating. How is this done? Hint* They’re all hand-sewn (invisibly) from behind!
Sometimes the hard way is the best reward. <3
