ON MY RADAR | The Pleating Affect

There are a variety of pleats caught in my crosshairs: Accordian, knife, box and cartridge pleats just to name a few.

I remember the days when I hated pleats because I didn't like to iron them in my school uniform. And coming from a strict Caribbean background, my pleats had to be razor sharp.  But now that I'm sans the parentals, I'm totally digging the use of this fabrication. Why? I can now send my pleated garments to the cleaners. Take that mom! :-)

I love pleats three! I recently found the most beautiful green pleated skirt at a local half off thrift store sale. I can't wait to style it for work or church.
