We used the same basic technique to build this skirt as I did for her wild print deep yoke skirt. I did use a light fabric for the facing on the faux leather and I sewed down the facing at the top of the waist. I also sewed down the seam allowance on either side of the seam as well as the darts at the waist.
For the skirt, we decided on length, subtracted the length of the yoke and added in hem and seam allowance to get the fabric length. Two pieces were cut. One the width of the front yoke piece (including seam allowance) and one the width of the back yoke plus ten inches.
The back skirt has five box pleats. One in the center and two on either side spaced two inches away. You could easily do fewer pleats or no pleats altogether. Just adjust the width of the back skirt piece accordingly.
