How to Make a Pleated Wrap

Threads magazine - 174 - Aug./Sept. 2014

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.

    I have not been able to find permanently pleated fabric. Where do I find it? This is a beautiful wrap and I would like to make one.

    Exqfabrics.com has had some ombre dyed ones. Good luck.

    In reviewing these directions, I did not see anything that shows how the raised collar effect is achieved...are there additional instructions available to achieve that look?

      I'm looking for the same thing - How do you complete the collar? In my opinion, that's what elevates this piece!
