Then pin the pleats into inverted box pleats.
Sew the back to the front with right sides together and leaving a hole on one side to turn inside out. Then turn inside out.
Then I drew lines every 1 1/2″ horizontally. I didn’t take a picture of this part but I hand tacked where the lines crossed the pleats. One row I left the box pleat closed, the next row I alternated and tacked the box pleat open. The tacking took FOREVER. It was worth it though! I’m really happy with how it turned out! It looks luxurious to me.
This is my back which is fabric I adore. I used it for the lining of this jacket.
So these are my three couch pillows. I love them and love that I’m done with this part. I’ve only got two more front room projects before I can show the big reveal!
