Pleating to pattern and pattern placement

For one-width side panels, it was important to pleat this geometric woven silk to pattern.

With a horizontal repeat of just 7", we accomplished that by using 4" for the spaces and the remaining 3' for slender, two-finger pinch pleats.
We planned the cut so the little oval in the center of the medallion would appear near the top of the pleat, giving the appearance of additional detailing.
We liked Jen's idea of finishing the interlining with a twill tape binding, rather than a bulky double hem.
