New pleats

These draperies were on my worktable this week. This is a new pleat that I have not made before. Thanks to Pinterest, my customer and I ran across a picture that we liked and thought we should give it a try. tulip pleats

I thought I would call them tulip pleats.  They are going to go in a bedroom with these pillows and throw.

  1. How did you make these pleats

    • Hi Gloria, these pleats start like any other pleat or a goblet pleat. Then the front of the pleat is hand-stitched and gathered to the bottom. The buttons help to finish the look.
