1970s Miss Elliette Evening Gown

Accordion pleated chiffon trim is given a dramatic ruffled effect with a lettuce edge. A lettuce edge is achieved by enclosing a thin clear filament, similar to fishing line, in the outer edge of the trim.

I saw a gorgeous pink gown with lettuce edged layers on the skirt of the gown worn by Kathy Ireland on the 9/22/09 episode of Dancing With The Stars.

What a gown! (it overtook the dancing in my opinion) I would love to mimic the lettuce edged layers in a gown for my friend's daughter. Do you have any suggestions for what sort of material i should use?
Please comment below. I'll receive your comments in my email.
