Exclamation Anna's Coronation Skirt

Hello!

I'm in the process of making Anna's Coronation Dress. I didn't want to mess with box pleats, and even the dress they use at Disneyland doesn't use box pleats. My problem is, how would I measure how big to make the panels without pleats?

Reference:

Disney's Dress

What do you mean by measure the panels without pleats ? Do you mean how do you figure out how wide they must be ?

You will need your waist measure, the length from waist to hem and then go from there. Sketch it out. Figure the number of panels you'll need and do the division (for math purposes attach one green "ditch" to each lighter panel for ease of calculation).

Yes. I can't figure out how wide each panel needs to be. (I just figured the box pleat would help you figure out the width. Maybe I'm just crazy.)

Oh, I'll try calculating it that way and see what I get.
Thank you!

It would be the same for box pleats - you're just adding the width of the green area you want to have showing to the "panel" in your calculations instead of having the green part be a hidden 2x the total panels.

Also, with the fact that the box pleats are all shaped it would make calculating the green ~extra fun~. And construction would be even more ~fun~
