Simplicity 2172 – Unpleated Panel
Tip: It is difficult to transfer the pleat markings to nine panels using the regular transfer process. I tried and dgot frustrated as the markings just did not copy to the fabric. I ended up transferring the markings, one panel at a time, using a charco tracing wheel. I used weights to anchor the patterned to my work table and for accuracy I used my 36" quilt ruler to line up and transfer the markings to each panel. Yes, it was slow and maybe there is a better way. If someone knows a better, please let me know.
