I was so happy that I found this pleat making video tutorial by Saturday Night Stitch, on YouTube. This video has become so near and dear to my heart because I had always wanted to make these gorgeous box pleats. I call these pleats cheerleader pleats because they were the pleats of the day in the Seventies. All the cute cheerleader skirt patterns were made using this box pleated style. In this wonderful tutorial, the pleat making method described uses a fork to make a perfectly formed block pleat. This fork method makes these pleat so simple and gives a crisp symmetrical look. I have also seen these pleats used at the ends of a pillowcase or towel and they look super-cute on home decorative items, and they add a distinct tailored flair to anything you add it to.
