Orange County, C...
While looking for a pleat front shirt pattern, it dawned on me that I didn’t need to spend money on another pattern just to get pleats on my shirt. So I sat down at my computer, where so many of my sewing projects begin, and designed a template I could use to alter my favorite shirt pattern. I started with 4 pleats then decided the pleat sections were just a little too narrow so I changed it to 5. I used the template to make my swim suit cover-up and it worked great. After I published the cover-up people wanted to know the pattern number. That’s when I realized I should share the template. It works on just about any style neckline for men’s or women’s shirts that open in the front and those that don’t. The template is now available and ready for free download with the link in “credits”.
