I am hoping to make a long, pleated formal skirt as part of my wedding dress, like the one in the Elie Saab picture below.
The skirt will hang down parallel to the lengthwise grain and I am planning to drape the muslin using a mannequin.
I was just wondering how might the pattern look, and approximately how many metres of fabric would I need for the skirt? My measurements are currently 70cm waist, 115cm front length, perhaps a bit longer at the back.
Any advice would be very appreciated. Thank you so much.
