Friday - Baby Shirt with pleats
this wonderful tutorial. But as always, I can't just stick to a pattern and yesterday I had pleats on my mind. I am sure there is a right way to do pleats, but not being aware of it, I just gave it a try.
I added about 4cm on the fold (8cm in total) and then put in the pleats by folding the fabric (one pleat used up a bit more than 1cm). The trim is added with the serger, folded up and than top-stitched.
Adding the pleats makes it a 'more than 90 minute shirt' but then I enjoy the part of playing around a bit.
