FLuting chiffon

sewpro | Posted in General Sewing Info on

I just watched a Sundance channel piece about Ralph Rucci (so inspiring!) He mentioned a dress that was made by fluting the chiffon. Does anyone know how this is done?

    The manufacturer has a pleater press that looks a bit like a waffle iron; the fabric is inserted, then set with steam or heat till dry, and then removed. Years ago, I read about ways that home sewers were trying duplicate the technique, but no one had found anything other than sending the yardage to a manufacturer to have it done for them.

      Thank you! That makes sense, it fits with what I saw. There is a pleating company in San Francisco that might do this. I'll ask them. Thanks again and happy sewing! -Janet
