New York, New Yo...






Underneath there’s a basic skirt and on top the pleated pieces in different colors and different measure, from 8cms to 16cms.
I made it this summer for a class I had with a peruvian fashion designer, where she encouraged me to work with chiffon.

    I LOVE this. Would you mind providing a picture of the waistband and the zipper – I’d be interested to see how that works. Also, same question as everyone else – did you pleat it yourself. If so, you should definatley do a pleating tutorial as its super neat! Not that I ever even remember to post projects let alone tutorials. But anyway, I love it, I want it, one day I may even get round to trying to make it!!

    Cool! Same question… did you pleat the fabric yourself or is it pre-pleated?

    This sure looks like magic ;) Did you pleated it by hand or with a machine?

    looks great. Did you hand pleat or use a pleater board? do you have more photos?
