How to get distracted by the accordion (pleats) – Lingerie

Anne Francis Vintage Lingerie – pleats

Look at how elegant it drapes. How thin the fabric is…how permanent the pleats are~

dievca started hunting for a nightgown with knife-pleats and she went into a tailspin of information and found out, it is a type of fabric not used in gowns very often.

First let’s define types of pleats:

Looks like the pleats in the original Nightgown are Accordion pleats:

Apparently accordion pleats hang down without poufing out and give volume via movement, not by the pleat itself. Nylon can be permanently pleated, silk cannot.

Here are the items dievca found so far….

Some from Etsy, already sold. Some without accordion pleats- but floaty, some with pin-tuck pleats, some are dresses not lingerie, some are short and not long….nothing was right.

This may be a QUEST!

The question is….is it worth dievca’s time?
Master?
