Mourning Dress - Embellishment, part 1

Today I cut out the strips for the pleats at the bottom of the skirt.

After sewing all the strips together and hemming them, I tried out my "Perfect Pleater".

It does make it tremendously easier than trying to do all that pleating by hand alone.

Almost done with making the pleating.  I pinned the pleats together because I want to steam them all again before attaching them to the skirt.
