I’ve been seeing accordion-pleated skirts all over, and I love the look. I’m not even sure if ‘accordion’ pleat is the right term— all the skirts I’ve seen are almost-knife-pleated, but the pleats are not stitched down at the top. The end result is rather like a pleated lampshade or a paper fan:
I suspect that one could set semi-permanent pleats into a synthetic fabric by some judicious ironing (melting?!) of the pleats, or the application of steam and vinegar. Am I on the right track? Has anyone pulled this off at home? I swear I’ve seen this sort of unstitched pleat set into silk before, and I can’t quite imagine how its would work on a non-synthetic. Would one simply have to treat it as dry-clean only and re-press the pleats when needed?
I would love to hear anyone’s insight on this. Thank you very much!
