Should link to a tutorial on a tiered skirt. Basically, the middle tier is half of the bottom, the top half of the middle. A 10 yard skirt has a bottom tier length of 10 yards, middle of 5 and top of 2 Ta-daa!
Uses approximately 5 meters (or just under 5 yards). Adjustments just to make the math easy: 14 panels, yd per panel = 7 yds total OR yd per panel = 10 yds total (this would be more of a 20 yd skirt)
