The kilted part of the skirt is just a large tube of fabric, and I used a little less than 4 widths of the 45" fabric to make the tube. The pleating was pretty tedious, but I was VERY grateful that I could use the lines in the plaid to measure my folds. I sewed a stay tape to the inside of the pleats just above my knees to help keep everything in place.
Now I just need to re-bustle my overskirt, sew it to the waistband, and my skirt will be complete! Hopefully I'll have time to squeeze that in tomorrow.
