As the title says 'Box pleats or Knife pleats'? I have had to take out the gathers from the dress because the Dutch Satin is very thick and the gathers are looking very uneven. So I went to my textiles teacher and asked her opinion and I know that gathers are very 50s, I wasn't sure what to replace it with, so she gave me the suggestion of box or knife pleats, or a box pleat in the middle at the front and middle at the back, while the rest around the waist is done with knife pleats. I don't know what to choose because I want to maintain the 1950s look. How close/far should I make the pleats to each other? Box pleats or Knife pleats? So many questions in my mind.
What do you think???
This is what my dress currently looks like:
I really need to fix it and FINISH!
I am going to use this dress for my major artwork for school, part of my photography, but I'm not going to wear it- my friend is, does anyone know of photography techniques? how to use photoshop? Techniques for photomontage???
