Thanks everyone!

Karen, that's great. I'll get right on it! What would be the best format? Should I make little step by step patterns in PE?

Word is good for the text - if you can do step by step - that would be great.

You can send to me as one las and I can work with it.

I always do those things by hand and by eye. IOW, I figure out how deep and wide I want each pleat, cut the fabric that size and stitch it in. I didn't know there was a formula or anything. The things we learn from this board!

Lovely skirt, BTW, Marie-Anne

That skirt is "to die for". You are some sewing lady. (I wish I could wear something like that. Perhaps a strict diet for 10 years would do the trick.)

Every once in awhile in all the years I have had my programs and been reading and watching..A real star shows up. Mary Ann is one of those stars. Smart, pretty, a VERY good seamstress along with a good personality. Karen is another..

WELL DONE AND THANK YOU BOTH.

I agree, Sonya.

Thank you again, Marie-Anne, for taking the time to photograph your beautiful work, explain it to us so clearly how it is done, and Karen for putting it in the Wiki.

Aww guys, you're too kind! I'm glad you like the wiki post. Please let me know if you have any troubles, I'd love to help you. I will probably be making another one soon and I would like to document the construction and post it to my blog. I'll keep you posted.
