      Any pair I ve ever seen, the pleats fold toward the center, front and back. I don t think I ve ever heard of them going the other way, or just to one side

              If this is the site I think it is, I used these instructions to make my
              Hakama too. I did things a bit differently than the instructions,
              though. After I cut the leg pieces out, I folded and pressed the pleats,
              then used basting stitches to hold them in place while I stitched the
              legs together. I also used french seams and of course, made sure that
              the pleats faced inward, toward the center.
              And the backplate? Ditch it. It's a post period affectation, as far as I
              know.

                  Noble Cousins!

                  Greetings from Solveig! Line drawings in Edo Fukushokushi suggest that
                  extensive pleating of hakama may be a Meiji era innovation. Certainly,
                  thre are photographs of hakama in the nuikata book which have very little
                  no pleating. Having worn modern hakama, I can safely say that they are
                  much more extensively pleated than the hakama depicted in either book.
