Step 5: Finish Pleating

-Make 3 more pieces like the first pleated piece, for a total of 4 pleated pieces.
(Remember, each of these pleated pieces is made from 3 full sheets of newsprint.)

-This dress should fit around a size medium. In general, you need one pleated piece for every 8 inches of waist circumference if you want to try to adapt it for larger sizes.
