I'm looking to make a costume (see below image), and I'm wondering if anyone knows if this particular type of skirt (where there's a different colour on the under pleats) has a specific name, or if there's a pattern or tutorial that features a similar effect. I've had no luck finding one on my own, but it feels like there should be one somewhere - I'd rather not spend the time creating my own way of doing it if I don't have to.

As for the top, I figure I'll try to modify one of the mandarin-style top patterns I have in my collection, but if anyone knows of one that's particularly close (all I have are some retired patterns from Simplicity & McCalls), the tip would always be appreciated.

Thank you!

Google cheerleading costumes...

The skirt is an inverted pleated skirt...basically, you alternate the colors but then pleat the top color over the under color.

Here is a link that you might like...but I think it would be simpler to go buy a pattern and then adapt it.

She has many patterns that might fit what you need.
