When adding a pleat to a seam you will need to add extra fabric( marked in green in the picture). The amount of fabric will depend on how wide you want your pleat to be.
With right sides together sew the seam of your garment stopping at the top of the pleat, shown in orange.
Trousers, blazers, and blouses in cool neutrals have model-off-duty style.
