Pleating The Fabric

It is such a meticulous hand-work! For sure it takes some time if you want to get a really fabulous pattern. The first step of pleating is to draft the cartridge sheet of paper. Then you can start creating the pattern just folding and following the drafts you did. It is not a hard work to do just needs some patience! As you need two the same pattern pleated pieces of the paper in which between place the fabric and steam it very well. And here you get the beautiful piece of pleated fabric!
