Three Way Stop
Pleating is a universal garment shaping technique. You will see it in many different fabrics, both sewn and knit. It can be used to create a swishy skirt, add a little extra room to pants, or some extra shaping to sweaters.
I’ve created a hat design that incorporates a traditional box pleat as a way to decrease the crown, and I also used a technique that I call a reverse box pleat to add volume and shape to the body of the hat. It is a slouchy hat that comes in two adult sizes.
