    Very pleasant colour! I really like it! And you’re very brave to work with pleats, because as for me – they are a disaster! :D Once I tried to make them on non pleated fabric and should iron them after every washing. Second time I’ve taken pleated fabric and had the same problems as you did (I’ve read on your blog) with fitting on hips and waist. In conclusion I’ve decided for myself that pleats must be done on professional equipment to look good and I’ll try to use them only as decoration :) I’m not Marilyn Monroe, so can live without them :P

      I’ve definitely stayed away from pleats since! I do need to get these professionally pressed as well, and hopefully it will look a bit better. Thanks!
