Box Pleated Yoke Skirt

1 1/2"Drop waist, 1 1/2" pleates with a 4 1/4" yoke was used to design this skirt. I am short waisted so a 1" drop would have been better and probably a 4"yoke. This skirt has a faceing to match the yoke as well as lining. To line this pleated skirt I cut the lining to the skirt pattern with the pleates folded closed, then I left slits up the sides of the lining to give the skirt room for the movement of the pleats. This worked very well. Thank you to the internet.
