Yeah, I would say A-line with pleats, and the pleats are sewn down for the first six inches or so.

it's not a circle, you can tell because all the stripes are vertical.

its just a rectangle pleated to waist size--you can see that all the stripes don't reduce in width thru the stitching.

this is not a standard draft, it is done this way to take advantage of the stripes.  ordinarily, the skirt is pleated to fit the hips and then the waist section is lapped a bit to allow for the smaller circumference.
