whatever is on your mind to do with those pleats- it is entirely up to you! As mentioned- in my case it was meant to be an alternative hem to my dress. Normally, I would fold two pieces right side together, the hem allowances together and stitch, but due to the complicated houndtooth pattern i just pinned the pleated hem just under the old hem of the dress and topstitched very close to the edge.
