Most of the pleats I've seen in the store topstich the pleats part of the way down which seems to hold them in place bettet. Also, when you iron your skirt make it a little damp (with a spray bottle). When it's no longer wet, just damp, spray on some hairspray. Or you can rub some wax on it and melt it in with the iron. These help keep the pleats really stiff and crisp.

i know at least one way to help pleats stay pleats is to dry clean..i guess you have to decide which is more of a pain- ironing or dry cleaning. then again theres always those dryel-or something of the sort- bags

YOu have inspired me to take a stip of penguin fabric I have left over and to try making that into a skirt...with some other fabric, of course...it'd be WAY too short alone...

You could try using spray starch when you iron it. You can use like a bijillion amount of it to make it really hard, but you dont really have to. I dont use all that much, and the creases stay in my pants. Hope i helped!
