I saw it in Project Runway! My guilty pleasure. Anyway, that makes me feel a little better that my attempt to re-create the Robyn Mathieson dress has thus far been a total failure.
I’m also planning on re-creating this skirt from Trenery ($150 for a polyester skirt made in China!??! WTF?! ):
But think I need to first make myself a pleating board. Luckily I had found 2 great tutorials on just how to do that. One from Burda Style and one from Made by Lex. They seem simple enough, I just need some poster board and a big ruler. Then I will be able to make kilts and tons of other awesome pleated stuff!
I was thinking of checking out the Wellington Fashion Workshop and maybe taking a class as they probably have a pleater board, and definitely overlockers and dress forms and real cutting tables, but as of yet I have not been. That is also part of my strategic plan for the upcoming few months. In the meantime I am continuing with my ukulele lessons (though rarely practising because I can’t tune the goddamn thing) and other creative extracurriculars.
