When creating pleated ruffles, here are some important points to note:
The patterns for the pleated ruffles must be added or created. Since the pattern will be pleated, ensure that the pattern can accommodate the width of all the pleats and space between each of the pleats. Use internal lines and notches to help identify the position of all the pleats.
Add the pleat using the Insert tool and ensure that the direction of the pleat is correct and that the top of the pleat is in the right position.
Use the 3D Styling tools to pinch and correct the simulation of the folds.
Lower the grid size for smoother curves.
