Box Pleats

I love me some box pleats.
Case in point – That’s me, in my wedding dress, with box pleats.Olthoff_390

They’re gorgeous.  The pleats, I mean.

I have been wanting to make a box pleated table skirt for this table for awhile now, and while my boys were spoiling me on Mother’s Day (by leaving me alone)  I finally got it done.  I’m not thrilled with it, but not too bad for my first try!  I wish I had made smaller pleats, though.  Oh well!  It serves its purpose and hides a bunch of junk!

  1. Yay Katie! Not to shabby. I agree with smaller pleats. How many times did we sew the dining room curtains before we got them just right?

  2. I have a table that I was just thinking of doing this for. Yours looks amazing--even more enouragement to bust out the sewing machine. Great job.

  20. Hi Katie,
    I LOVE your gate! It's perfectly shabby, and the shape is great! I love the way the dark wood of the table contrasts against all the white of the gate and accessories. Love the burlap skirt, too!
    Have a great day!
    Jo :-)
