I've fallen in love with this style of pleating and ruffles but I have no idea how to do such a pleat and was hoping someone here might have done them before and could guide me. This is from a wonderful Etsy maker, I've also fallen for the Ewa I Walla/Ivey Abitz/Magnolia Pearl styles. Your help would be so greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance. x http://www.etsy.com/listing/64988793/short-ruffle-slip-dress

Doesn't seem too difficult. It just looks like she folded up a piece of the fabric and sewed across it! She's just leaving the extra fabric on the outside instead of it being on the inside. Know what I mean?

ETA: Or did you mean the portion along the bottom? Cheesy That's not super difficult either. Let me try to find a tutorial. I think one exists around here...
Here are a few takes on it

They look to me like double pointed darts sewn on the right side of the fabric instead of the wrong side.

This site does a good job at illustrating the difference between regular darts and double pointed darts.
