It took me an embarrassingly long time to realize what the “WC” stood for on this print. Also took an embarrassingly long time to figure out the math for the pleats. I was trying to work backward from having the amount of fabric and the size it had to become. I never did get it right so they’re not even. Oh well.
Here’s a closer pic of the print.
