Box pleat: "A tailored fabric fold formed by two folded edges, one facing right and other facing left... Deep inverted, tailored pleats which create a boxy look and add extra fullness"
I have always loved the look of a perfectly tailored pleat, but am LOVING it at the moment on all types of furniture. It looks great when used on one of your special pieces as a skirt in a fresh, new fabric. You'll find the piece takes on a whole new lease of life. There is something so feminine about this look. If you have any other pictures, I'd love to see them!
