The lines for the tucks marked in chalk. The space between the lines dictates how big the tuck will be.
(One tuck didn't take the skirt up enough so I added another tuck using the same method.)

The completed tucks hold the skirt out nicely
When the tucks were finished, I added some white ribbon around the hem as a trim.

I'm pretty pleased with how the whole thing has turned out; the tucks make the skirt bell out nicely.
