This week, there are two, that’s right, TWO “two”-torials! I just couldn’t resist when I realized how handy pleats can be. I’ve been noticing so many pin-tucked yokes and insets and even sleeves in the latest runway shows,

and many of the talented BurdaStyle members have been using them as well, and have really inspired me, so here is an easy to follow Pin Tuck How To. I also recently re-discovered the box pleat, and now I just can’t get enough. It’s quite simple, but takes a special eye for detail when sewing, since the pleats can easily shift around. At any rate, the result is worth it. It’s elegant and at the same time sporty, perfect for skirts and blouses, and you can learn how to sew box pleats here. Hope you enjoy these how to’s, and don’t forget to share your creations, pretty please . . .
