    Wow, Mirela, a ruffler, I’d sure like one of them… I was stuck in the fabric-shop with a pleated ribbon in my hand today… :-). Will keep my eyes open!

    Great! It gives such a perfect finish, I’ll sure use it one day. You can also try to find a ruffler, it will do pleats too automagically. I found one from White (metallic and the cheaper kind) and it matches with my Brother sewing machine. Also I think there is some kind of metal ruler that helps ironing perfect pleats of the same lengths…what’s that called, I’d like to have one of those…
