English translation:in order to obtain an irregular, puffy* fabric, give it a shiny finish and a worn look
Explanation:
just a poetic muse in a textile fashion!
for puffy you could also use airy, soft, full-blown, padded etcetc as the mood takes you!
tip: try not to translate the words but imagine the fabric and then describe it to a friend (I spend a lot of time at the computer with my eyes closed imagining!)
Hope this helps
