02-pleatThe end is near! That’s right, some of my biggest deadlines are rapidly approaching which means it’s almost time for some selfish sewing! As I put the finishing touches on these projects, I can give you one last sneak peek of what I worked on recently…. a pretty purple neoprene laser cut from Gorgeous Fabrics (I checked this morning and it was sold out on the site) that is lined in a bright turquoise.

This was easily the most challenging tutorial that I have ever written – it morphed from something pretty ‘basic’ into a pleated _______, with facings, linings, and even a zipper thrown in too! Whew!
