Hi guys I need some advice on sewing pleats. I have tried to make the Marie skirt, but the pleats were very bulky. I pinned them down and then sewed on the right side of the fabric. Then there was lots of bulk at the back. I think I may have done this wrong.
Please what is the correct way to make pleats, do you have to trim the fabric at the back also.
Thanks in advance
