It's hard to see the cross-over in the white - you'd have to add a contrast piping or something to get it to show up.  Here's one of the same pattern that shows the cross a little more:

I prefer the single-sided pleats yours has tho - especially on the single-tone satin, it adds dimension.  Prolly wouldn't use a stretch fabric myself; maybe a heavy brocade or some type of upholstery fabric, then a shrug in a complementary color to wear in fall/winter.  Can totally see wearing this to the symphony.

The fabric and the fuller skirt with the button waist reminds me of "the polo dress" from Pretty Woman.

Found some explanation in Ravelry comments about how to read the markup:

"Well, if you print out the graphs and line them up it will be a lot clearer how it works. They are colour-coded, so for example you line up the gold stars in one graph with the gold stars in another and youll see how theyre connected. In the graphs, I take the dots to mean chains, the long dashes to mean double crochet and the little crosses to be single crochet. The upside-down vs, or lambda shapes, are decreases.
The most confusing graph is cxema 5. Cxema 5 is basically the pattern for the bottom edging of the skirt and it features alternating little pineapples and larger shells. I think here the tiny circles mean chains this time. Perhaps the crosses with double bar mean triple crochet, though if you substitute double crochet that will work too. There are also little dewdrop symbols along the top and I dont know what those are supposed to mean.
This skirt is on my to-do list and I did start writing out a pattern of it for myself, though once I figured out how the colour-coding is supposed to work it seemed like it would be possible just from the charts.
Hope this helps."
