Kilt Pleating There are two basic methods of pleating a
kilt. In one - called
pleating to the stripe - a vertical stripe is selected and the
fabric will be folded so that this stripe runs down the center of
each pleat. The result is a style where horizontal bands appear
along the back and sides of the kilt (see the gallery photo
"pleating to the stripe"). A kilt pleated in this fashion
will look different from the front than it does from the back.
It is often called military pleating because this is the style of
pleating adopted by most military regiments. It is also widely used
by pipe bands.
The other style of pleating is called
pleating to the sett (see
example). Here, the fabric is folded in such a way that the
pattern of the sett is repeated all around the kilt. This is done
by taking up one full sett in each pleat. The result is a kilt
which looks much the same from the front as from the back.
