Pleating calculations
I need help calculating pleats on a dress

I'm a bit stumped. I am sewing a little girls' dress and I've decided that I would like to pleat the skirt piece onto the bodice instead of gathering it. All the pieces have been cut and I can't seem to calculate the pleating correctly. My bodice measures 28 1/2" and my skirt piece measures 72" long (These are raw measurements). How can I calculate the pleating? Is there a formula that I should be using?

Thank you in advance for all your help.
