pleats are introduced usually at the waist line of skirts and dresses

to provide fullness evenly all around .One usually employees knife

pleats , box pleats ,inverted pleats alone are in combination . Other types

of pleats are kick pleats , cartridge pleats and pinch pleats . The

preparation of pleats is similar to that of tucks . The main difference

being that the pleats are not stitched all the way down . sometimes they

are stitched partway down the garment for flatness . To make each

pleat of you require twice the width of the finished pleat . So

if you want pleats touching each other all round the garment .

The amount of material needed is three times the finished width .
