Box Pleating

This is made by turning the first pleat to the left and the next to the

right. The same amount of material is required as for side pleating. If

the pleats are to be one-half inch deep, the box pleat will be one

inch across. Baste with silk thread at the top and bottom, and press on

the wrong side. A simple box pleating may be basted through the center

and the edges caught together.
