Double Inverted Pleat
The double inverted pleat is an interesting version of the inverted pleat. In this post I will show you how to do this. Because of the thickness of the pleat, use the low bulk method of construction.
Top Row Left: Drapery panel with inverted pleats.
Top Row Center: Mark the pleat. The pleat width is 6". Draw lines at 1" increments.
Top Row Right: On the back, fold as shown.
Middle Row Left: This is how the front looks.
Middle Row Center: Tag baste these two pleats two or three times.
Middle Row Right: On the back fold along the remaining lines.
Bottom Row Left: Tag baste these outside pleats.
Bottom Row Center: If you have a pleat tacker that will go through all layers, tack. If not, hand tack the pleats top, bottom and in the center. Use a needle nose pliers to pull the needle through.
Bottom Row Right: The finished double inverted pleat.
