How to Make Box Pleats?

Answer

To make box pleats you will need drapery fabric, pleating tape which should be designed for box pleats, and curtain hooks which should be designed for box pleats. You will also need scissors, a sewing machine, thread, pins, iron, measuring tape, and a curtain rod. First you will need to place the curtain rod over the window. Cut the fabric into panels and to the dimensions of the window. Starting with the top edge you will need to fold and press from the wrong side of the fabric, then add a piece of pleating tape. You will then stitch along the fold at the top. Repeat this step to your liking.
