Pleating result depends on four elements: pleat pattern, pleat depth, number of stitches per pleat and sewing machine's stitch length

The maximum depth of every pleat is 1". Number of stitches per pleat means the distance between the starting point of one pleat and that of the next pleat. Maximum number of stitches per pleat is 15. Stitch length of sewing machine is its feeding length setting.

The pleat space is number of stitches per pleat multiplied by stitch length, then minus pleat depth. More stitches/pleat setting or longer stitch length, larger the pleat space.
