It seems to me that whether pleating leaves marks depends upon whether it's done with needle and thread, or simply with folding and steam/pressure. I don't think stitch marks always show up on archaeological fabric, but we have no reason to believe they wouldn't show up on the Pskov piece. There are other surviving stitch marks on the Pskov piece (in likely loop locations), so it seems likely that any stitched pleating would show up on the piece--and none does.

I'm personally a fan of the idea that the Pskov dress was a wraparound style (with the decorated bib in front), but I can see the problems with that idea also.

I agree that it's good to see Pskov being considered as evidence for apron dress design, even in a flawed way.
