Pleating

Got all my neckline trim pleated and pinned. Whew! That took a long time, but I'm quite pleased with how it's looking. It's a tube of taffeta ironed flat with the lace sewn on one side and a line of stitching to fake a tiny hem on the other side. I was going to ruche the thing, but it ended up being a bit too stiff so I went with pleats instead, copied from this gown in the Philadelphia Museum of Art.


Here you can see the lace that was giving me so many fits. It's just slightly more ivory than the net. I'm totally over it now, though. I decided it looks fine and I was being silly.


Now I have to decide if I want to stitch down the pleats with one line of stitching down the middle or two parallel lines. What do you think?
