Double Or Triple Box-pleating

This is made by adding one or more pleats, one on top of the other.

Begin by making two or more pleats turning to the left, then the same

number turning to the right. Be very accurate, being careful to keep the

box pleat the exact width desired. Baste at the top and bottom. This

pleating is nearly always used by basting through the center, after

having slightly pressed. The top and bottom bastings are then removed.

The pleating may be caught together at top and bottom of box pleat, and

it is then known as rose pleating.
