January 16, 2010Vintage Crafty Saturdays – Singer How-To For Retro Pinch-Pleat Drapes
Thank goodness it is Saturday! I thought that week would never end. Jeez. So, as a reward to everyone for making it to the week, here is a great pamphlet that I recently found that gives detailed instructions on how to make pinch-pleat drapes. I know! It is really exciting, isn’t it?
I love this, because it gives details about estimating yardage, exact measurements for making pleats, instructions for lined and unlined drapes and and it also includes FOUR different kinds of pleats: the famous pinch-pleat, a French pleat, a box pleat and a Cartridge pleat. Wow. I am overwhelmed with vintage style. I didn’t even know there were four kinds of pleats.
