I really need help from a sewing guru on this one. I love the shape and style of this skirt worn by Emma Watson in an old issue of Teen Vogue:
But I have no idea how to achieve this sort of shape. Will a simple pattern with a box pleat due the trick? Does it need some sort of special structuring to make the brocade create that bell shape? Is there a name for this shape even? All thoughts and advice welcome!
