I have a client who would like the dress below. Does anyone have suggestions/thoughts on what the pattern piece shape of the skirt is? In my spacially-challenged mind, I believe the skirt is a giant rectangle, but can't figure out the shape of the pattern piece to attach it to the bodice. (Hopefully the picture shows up!)

It looks more as if it's a wedge shaped rectangle, where the top edge is about four times the length of the bottom edge. You can test on the shape a dress form with a simple length of fabric as a rectangle to start with, and pin it onto the waist until you get the waterfall effect.
