    Hi. I'm unsured to what this refers to in spanish:
    "women's pin-tuck woven top."
    I know it's "blusa tejida para damas" but don't know if pin-tuck refers to the woven style or what.
    thanks.

    La verdad, no me imagino la blusa ... ¿Es una blusa?

    Si es una blusa. creo que se refiere a unos pliegues.
    Encontré esta definición para "pintuck":

    Pintuck
    A small, narrow fold of fabric stitched together to create the appearance of a line or stripe

    ¿Algo así como "plisada" o "tableada"?

    The appropiate term would be "lorzas". Its a kind of narrow pleats with the same width and direction. They are'nt located pleats for fitting the garments. They are only for embellishment and all over a piece of the garment.

    The term that Iararo suggests (alforzas) its too appropiate, but I think is usual at South America (I haven't heard it before at Spain).
