Shown with optional pleating thread. See below.

Pleating Thread

Pleating Thread.

We recommend hand quilting dual duty plus thread by Coats and Clark for all your pleating. This thread is durable cotton covered polyester that will not pull apart when working with your garment. Orange is our color of choice since it is highly visible on both light and dark fabric plus it doesn't leave "dye tracks" when removed from your garment. Pleating/smocking will be more pleasurable when you eliminate thread worries with this quality product.
