Do box pleats add significantly more movement? Or will side pleats give a similar amount of extra fabric for movement?

It depends on how deep the side pleats are, of course. Usually they aren't as deep as a box pleat -- I think they usually give about half of what a box pleat would.

Depends on the depth of the side pleats. Side pleats are cleaner and more dressy, while box pleats are more casual and in general more billowy. Side pleats with a split yoke cut on the bias can be just as comfortable as a deep box pleat in my opinion.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
