    You need to star with a skirt pattern that is much wider at the waist than at the hem. Sort of V shaped. Pleat the excess into the waist line.

    To get the best effect you will probably need to drape it rather than use a flat pattern, and experiment with an interlining to stiffen it.

    You may have to mount this on a pencil skirt shaped lining to help it hold the shape, though I can’t tell if they did this with the original. The side seams of the skirt also look curved, so factor that in when you experiment.

    See if this works good luck.

    The pleats remind me of loosely made version of inverted box pleats that are pressed only at waist seam allowance.
