I don't really know what you are asking. Are you working from a pattern? In my mind I don't really see pleats and tulip skirt going together.

Do you mean something like this pattern?

http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/marie

The first time I did pleats, it was actually on the Buttercup Bag, and of course I was like "wha?" Turns out you bring the two marks TO EACHOTHER. Then the extra fabric between them forms the pleat. In the Marie skirt pattern, that "extra" fabric gets pressed towards the centre front and centre back of the skirt panels to create the pleats. And when they say press, yes, really, do press Tongue Your iron IS your friend!
