oh about the washable, i meant that it said practically that the only way to make the pleats permanent was to put tricot on them, it was unclear if the pleats would stay or not after washing the fabric.
Ive done the tricot thing here, just pleat, iron and put tricot on the back
hmm couldnt find the image after all haha, but you all know how it looks, the only risk is that after several washings or if the tricot isnt put correctly it can fall off or get bubbles here and there.
then i did the sewing thing...and it was like torture, wouldnt reccomend it only if your life depends on it haha but its true that holds the pleats really good.
But i think she means, or actually id like to know is how to make this kind of pleats permanent, since you cant actually put stitches on this, just the cut on top of the dress, i dont think that would be enough, would it?
