Do you know of a skirt pattern?
A rather specific skirt pattern

Does anybody know of a yoked, pleated skirt pattern with panels? I have some pretty funny cotton with happy faces wearing bandanas. Obviously it's not age-appropriate for a 40-something year old high school teacher, but I just love the colors and happiness of it. So I thought I could use it as the inside panels of box pleats on a yoked skirt. I tried googling that description but didn't come up with much. Does anyone know of such a skirt pattern off the top of their head?

Like this? Out-of-print, but you could probably get it on Ebay or Etsy (and in fact McCalls are selling it direct on that link).

A few ideas - some of them have godets rather than box pleats though.

This person has instructions, instead of a pattern, so nothing to buy... Could be worth a try!

Not a pattern, but I recently ran across a tutorial for a box-pleated apron using contrast fabrics. It might be helpful!

If you can get a hold of this Burda Magazinr, there is a really cute double inverted pleat skirt in it.

Sorry I'm late to this party, but I found a tutorial on how to add contrasting box pleats to a pattern. So if you have the yoked skirt, you can add your own. I love the idea of a wild print, hidden in a demure skirt!

Good luck, and I can't wait to see the finished skirt!
