I have a length of tweed from Huddersfield that I want to make into a coat with this feature.
If anyone saw the newer Sherlock Holmes movie, that's where the idea came from. Jude Law in the second half of the movie has a gray with red check (if I remember right) coat with a pleated vent. I can't find screen caps out there to show you all.
I see plenty of patterns on here with pleats, but it's the construction part that I want to understand before I move ahead.
