Hemming pleats can be tricky. One choice is to hem the fabric before you pleat it, but if that is not an option here are instructions for hemming after pleating. Basically, you are training the pleats to fold the opposite direction below the hem foldline.

Technique Materials

Pleats that need hemming, ruler, tailor's chalk, an iron, a bit of patience
