PINCH PLEATS :--These are used on curtains and draperies . The pleats are

spaced apart from each other and stitched partway down . Markings are

made for tucks . Finished width of the pleat can be about 2 1/4 ". So

you must allow 4 1/2 " extra material for each pleat . Space the tucks

and stitch each tuck from the top edge of the curtain .Next devide

the fullness of each tuck into three equal small pleats and baste them

together along the top and front edges . Press and machine the three

pleats together across their bottom ends .
