"Pleat" in context

Pleats are types of fabric folds used to add texture and sophistication to clothing or home decor. They are created by folding an overlapping fabric onto itself at regular intervals and then stitching or gathering it to create a decorative pattern. Pleats are often used for the flounce of skirts or tailored clothing such as shorts and shirts. While pleats can also be seen in draperies, drapes, and bedding, they are not as common as in apparel.
