    Another wow for the pleats! I always wondered what would JJ look like with them and now I see it looks gorgeous!

    This shirt is fabulous. I would like to make one like it. A how to section would be fantastic.

    thanks for the nice comments! it was quite a thick material so it wasn’t that difficule to sew. for once I followed the golden rule: IRON EVERYTHING, BEFORE AND AFTER… I’m so glad I did! the pleats took a lot of preparation. I played with paper first to get the effect I wanted. I could attempt a how to over the weekend if anyone is interested

    Wow, it looks so good, I’m sewing a JJ also out of satin and know what a hard job this is. Yours looks so neat and professional!

    This is gorgeous. the color is beautiful and I love the pleats. Is satin difficult to sew?
