      I made the skirt first and then made the ruffle to attach. The black sections add up to the circumference of the skirt, plus two seam allowances for each. I sewed three seperate sections of red material behind each black piece (so it holds a pleated shape better). Two that are half the width of a finished black (plus seam allowances) and one the same size as a black. Ironed into shape and then sewed on (black, small red, large red, small red, black…) You could do the red all as one piece and actually create pleats when ironing. I hope that is clear, ask again if you have any more questions.

    I like the unexpected color in the pleat.
