the Pleated Dress Project

Big idea I just had to try  :-)
What if I evenly pleat across a width of fabric, sew along the pleats partway down, then cut a dartless bodice shape out of the pleated middle section and let the skirt form naturally?
Here's how it came out.

My calculations of how much to pleat in order to gather the full width into the width of the bodice pattern I was using.
