What is the meaning of the word "gracefold?" I have searched for it in every online dictionary available, but I can't find it. Here's the whole sentence -

"She had fine, white hair that once had been a luxuriant black cascade, and against the gracefolds of her ivory velvet dress, her skin had the soft translucence old age sometimes brings."

The above sentence has been quoted from Sidney Sheldon's famous novel "Master of the Game."

I assume it means 'graceful folds'.

I think the writer may have invented the word.
