I am just wondering if anyone has any hints or tips on drafting a pleated skirt pattern.
I know it shouldn’t be that difficult – but trying to do the arithmatic is making my head hurt!
How do I calculate how many pleats I need and what width they need to be, so that the skirt ends up with the correct waist measurement?
(for example, if total waist circumference is 90cm, and the front & back skirt pieces are 115 cm wide each; and pleats are approx 2cm wide)

Burda has a video class you can watch on grading up or down any size if you want to pay…
you can grade the pattern if you take the difference needed for the size you want….
Thank you – I’ll have a look now.
