Romancing The Grey…Pleated Wristlet

I really wanted to make one when I saw a few beautiful similar designs on Etsy. I could not find a pattern or tutorial for this design, so this is a result of another one of my wing-it-and-pray projects. I made it using a 2 inches interval pleats.
This design actually looks better using silk-satin material, but I wanted to use this beautiful medium grey Kona cotton I have in stash. Well, add interfacing and flannel interlining, the seams are a bit too bulky for comfort. After a lot of pressing and smoothing and leaving it overnight, the wristlet looks and feels real pretty. I experimented with fabric flower too, had so much fun, I'm gonna make more of these beauties!

The chain is what makes this wristlet special. At first I thought of selling it but when I finished I knew I wanted to keep this for myself as I have a wedding to attend next weekend. So girly! And to think of making this in all the yummy colors, oh how fun will that be? Perhaps I'd try this in silk-satin too…What do you think? Any delicious color combo for the wristlet and the flower? Lemme hear your idea ya? J
