Have to say, your work is amazing! Definitely convinced me to add diamond pleats to my project.
Perhaps a dumb question but are you cutting the foam first or simply sewing straight into it like Don Taylor's book? I've noticed that some people seem to cut the pattern into the foam first, wondering if that makes it last longer as this will be going into my daily driver.
Also, one of your threads mentioned "setting the piping." I was wondering what you meant by that. How are you getting it to line up just so?
Thanks and once again very impressive work. Hoping my adventures come out similar.
