Anna Coronation Dress Skirt Pattern

Reference Picture:

Now this is one of the first 'complex' types of cosplay I'll be making so I really don't know how to go about making the skirt, so if someone could steer me in a direction that is helpful it'd be appreciated. I was thinking a little bit of an altered box skirt.

Yes, it's a tapered box pleated skirt.

You didn't say where you were coming from, so it's hard to help you get where you are going. "turn right on maple street" is useless if we don't know what city or country you are in.

Are you adept at making patterns? do you need one to start from? Can you ask the person whose picture you used?

The skirt you linked is beautifully constructed but I would have appliqued or painted the details before sewing all the panels together.

I've used patterns to make pants before so I CAN use them, I just don't know what kind to use for this since I'm still a beginner

I'm still really unclear what you want from us...

You know exactly what kind of skirt it is, so why aren't you looking for a pattern that fits that description? Chances are you will find it in a knee length pattern (probably vintage), but extending from knee to ankle is easy.

The B8118 Burda Style, Skirt o01101011 link will probably be the easier for a beginner to modify.

Be cause the animation is a touch flat here is the LE doll of anna for reference as well.
