just curious to know how other people do the stitching and the creases without too much complications to the model.

I'd create a script that would allow me to create a single spline and then have stitching geo cloned along the spline (but still constrained to it).

That being said I do not care about optimization too much. Garp's method would be far less resource intensive.

Edit: I'd like to add I'd script it right away because this is something I'm going to need to do a hundred times over at work so I'd want more automation.

The method doesn't need to be automated though and can be done 100% manually.

It would be a bit fiddly but Marvelous designer has a pleat tool that would do this easily, depends on the model of course.
