I am a little ruffled out this season. Don’t get me wrong, I like the ruffles but it’s on everything and everywhere…can we do something different? How about some pleating? Yeah, it’s similar but how about some clean press pleats. I was looking at my favorite magazine Surface and saw this cool pleat detail on a fashion photo. So, I thought hey, why not? Could be an update to the ruffle. Here are my sketches done in blue pencil. Love my blue pencil.
