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.


Starting in 2009, the Professor Pincushion team had a vision of creating a sewing tutorial website in which beginners could learn and master the art of sewing. Our site launched in March of 2010 and we have since produced over a hundred sewing related tutorials that cover everything from sewing basics to fun and original projects. Regardless of the subject, we always strive to create HD quality videos that takes the viewer step by step through each process so that nothing is left out and the mystery behind learning to sew is revealed to all.
