When you consider using pleats for an outfit there's always the question: what happens after washing? Will they look just as good? They will unfold a bit and the cloth may wrinkle a little also, so you will need to spend some considerable time ironing after every wash...What can you do to skip the ironing after, or at least make it a lot easier? There are some spray solutions for making pleats last or some recommend the use of vinegar, i will present an alternative that seems friendly to me, plus i love the look (also i'd be interested to know how all alternatives work for you).
Take a look at a few of my projects in which I used this - I find it so indispensable now!
Sweet dresses, an outfit for a doll, and cute embellishments are fun for the holidays!
