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

Thanks Jungrrl.  Kiss  Yeah I meant the tucks above the ruffle, I think I may have figured it out,just wanted to know if anybody had done these or they had an actual name. xxx

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.
