Sunray Pleating

Sunray pleats are also known as sunburst pleats. The pleats go from a single point at the centre of the body and flare out (waist = 6mm pleat hem = 4.8 cm approx pleat)
These must be cut in two half circles (PLEASE SEE DIAGRAM BELOW)
The maximum drop is 1.190 cm
It is helpful to mark the centres
As hemming that is pulled even slightly tight can cause mis-pleats, we prefer hemming to be done after pleating. (Hemming can cause it not to sit totally flat).
A waist must be cut out with a minimum of 280 mm as per diagram.
