Is it me, or is there a lack of tutorials/videos/help on the beloved kick pleat for clothing?  I found one site with fuzzy pictures and not the greatest tute.  Can anyone point me in the right direction?

I got a pattern from the Big 4 on sale for $1 that had instructions for a kick pleat.  I think that's the easiest way to get any new technique.  Then you have a pattern you can use to mod whatever pattern you're working with, as well as detailed instructions and diagrams.  My current hunt is for one that's lined, which is a different animal altogether.

That's a good idea!  I'll have to go scour the pattern books next sale.  As far as lining goes... oh that is a fun fish to fry!   Cheesy

Kick pleat - a double pleat with the outer edges folded toward each other, to allow expansion in a skirt, as at the bottom of a woman's skirt.

Here are some instructions about making a kick pleat:

Well, I bought a crib bedskirt from Goodwill with pleats in it.  I figured I would play with it until I figured it out.  Looks pretty simple?!?  Thanks everyone for your help and advice.
