Tack upper edges together. Make pleats into right side in accordance to marking. Fold short front edge to wrong side along marking and tack it along upper edge. Lay the flounce's wrong side on right side of front panel, coinciding lines and marking. Tack the flounce on the skirt along upper edge and side edges.
