Hi Everyone!

I'm looking for an on-line source for a prepleated fabric in turquoise.  The
pleats need to be permanent. It needs to be a dressy fabric, an organza or
an opaque fabric, but not a cotton.  It is to go on the sleeve cuffs and hem
area of an Irish dance dress I'm helping to design and then sew for the
dancer.

If I can't find such a fabric, I guess I'll try to locate a Perfect Pleater
and see if I can set pleats into a polyester or similar man-made fabric.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
Sheila

You might try searching on "pre-pleated organza trim".  A
while ago, someone on the SewBiz list asked about black
pleated organza, and I found this site:
http://www.ejoyce.com/pmain?cmd=e_view&num=6044&acode=000100120023&size=2

You probably don't want the lace edging, but maybe you could
remove it?

Or ask here:

NAYY,

Your request does not provide sufficient information to even
try to make a search. What *fiber* do you want your "100%
organza" made from???  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Organza

Beverly, yeah, feeling snarky tonight....

Hi and welcome to alt.sewing. Nice to see someone from China! Sorry can't
help with your request, but if you have facebook, I might be able to
suggest someone who can. I don't know the individual at all, only know of
her, if you see what I mean....

My dearly beloved will attest that's me on a good day....

Now relaxing at the computer coz there's nothing on the box that appeals. A
couple of glasses of a rather good antipodean shiraz at the end of an
unseasonably warm spring day, hoping for a couple more and the pool should
be up to temperature. The pool has to be about 90F these days before we go
in, but it does seem to do my back some good for a little while.

Meditate! It's better than sitting doing nothing.

Your search - organza - did not match any documents.
Suggestions:
    Make sure all words are spelled correctly.
    Try different keywords.
    Try more general keywords.

I appreciate your sincere effort in steering someone (in
China, or at least wanting delivery to China) looking for a
source of "pre-pleated cheer organza fabric" to look for it
in India, but really, wouldn't Indonesia be better (or at
least closer)?

Sure.  I just don't have any experience with Indonesian textiles, but I
notice that many of the things in my closet came from India.
