How to Make a Pleated Wrap
As seen in Threads #174 (August/September 2014), Threads Executive Editor Judith Neukam demonstrates how to create an elegant pleated wrap. The wrap is a perfect topper for any special occasion. Slip it on with a favorite little black dress, take it to a cocktail party, wear it over a T-shirt or an evening gown.
It is equally fashionable at the beach or at the opera. Whether it’s to protect from a draft or provide a shot of color, you can make this gem in an evening from fabric you buy already pleated. The pleats expand to fit your body as needed, and you can fold the collar and cuffs to suit your mood.
