i’d like to make a maxi pleated skirt out of chiffon with tons of knife pleats all round. http://dimg.dillards.com/is/image/DillardsZoom/03617588_zi?$c7product$
so i was wondering…
it would be easier to pleat chiffon if i stiffen it with starch,making it similar in consistence to cotton or similar fabric that holds folding and pleating easily. does it make sense or once i wash for the first time my skirt it will loose all the pleats?
have you some advice on how to speed up the pleating process and eventually make it easier?
thanks in advance :)

Thanks, I’ll give it a try!
I’m imagining the ruffle you’re talking about is just the result of the elastic …
Works for most cases if it’s a straightforward sleeve (no pleats, gathering or the like…
Yes, I found a youtube video that helped. Thank you for asking :-)
