I cut strips of fabric, then used a kebab stick to fold the fabric into pleats as I basted them.

Bloomers for Meanie*
I have been enjoying myself sewing derby shorts for the girls, each girl asks for something different, a little reflection of themselves. Meanie* (not her real name) asked for ruffles, so ruffles she got. The weight and stretch of the fabric meant that I had to make the ruffles first (which is actually pleated), then attach them to the shorts' legs.
