Default Pleats with corduroy?

Okay, I found a nice pattern for a dress for my niece, and I'd like to make it in a 16W corduroy that I've got--royal blue. The problem is that it's pleated, and since ironing corduroy can mess it up, I'm concerned. I know how to set pleats with iron-able fabric. How, exactly do you permanently set pleats with corduroy?
