I am an American Civil War reenactor–when I make my dresses something I find helpful to use to get consistency with cartridge pleats is tiger tape. It’s sold in the quilting supplies and helps in gauging pleat size. I’ll also work in sections equal to the width of one skirt panel to make it easier to handle.
