Box pleats are essentially two knife pleats sewn together, back to back. They have the same 4:2 ratio as box pleats (meaning 4" of fabric will result in a 2" finished pleat).

    Would a inverted box pleated skirt be the correct style of skirt in this picture? http://www.justmanga.com/jmcover/4545784060384.jpg

    This is very helpful, and pics are great. However, it takes 6 in of fabric to make the 2 in pleat as you show. We have to count from zero, not one. In other words, you need to include the fabric that ends up on the top surface of your finished pleat. this is important to calculate yardage required.

    Perfectly intelligible and illustrative. As Milsakate said, very helpful for beginners. Thank you!
