Tips to Make a DIY Pleated Top
I like pleated tops. I can achieve a beautiful look with some simple little layering.
And the best thing is, you don't need embellishments and trimmings to decorate a dress with pleats.
Plainer the fabric, better it looks.
You can add pleats to your skirt, long dress, tunic, kurti, suit, little black dress or any dress by the simple step, that I am going to show you.

Satin Pleated Top with Lining
The best fabric for this kind of Top is Georgette, Chiffon, Silk, Satin, Crepe’ or any other flowing fabric.
- The lining would add grace, durability, finishing to the Top but if you wish to make it otherwise over an inner then try to overlock or zigzag the edges so threads don’t fall around.
- Length you can increase or decrease.
- Width also you can increase adding inches. But width you can’t decrease beyond a point, because you have to fit into that Top,too.
- This Pleated Top is not body hugging if you want it so, then keep the measurements as under :-
Waist /4 + 1/2″
Hip/4 + 1/2″
