Finnish Bushcraft - Page 2 This is suppose to be a shirt, but while in NYC at a fashion show they made a coat out of Army Blankets, the sleeves, sides were sewn down, they had self fabric (Army Blanket) bias trim on raw edges cuffs, front, hems it was top stitched on center panel and side seams and all bias trim. Fabulous!! Think it would be a great DIY.
This technique looks confusing, but is not difficult to sew. These alternating pleats are just created by marking pleats at the top, and the bottom. The pleats at the bottom should be marked directly in between the marked top pleats. When you sew the pleats, it looks like the fabric is folded in on itself and intertwined together.
