Hi there! I just went and measured them, they're about 4,5 cm each, which according to Google is around 1,77 inches. Thank you and good luck with your cosplay! Meow :3

Thank you so much!! (: I'll copy/paste my answer to a similar question 'cause I'm that lazy :P What worked for me was first drawing each part (the pleated thing, the side things, the pockets, the big buttons and the middle thing) on newspapers and sort of putting them together and trying them on to see what shape/size I wanted for them. Then I bought this nice fabric which is special for pleated skirts because well, it stays pleated. I hope this helped and if you have any other doubts, do not hesitate to ask!! ^_^

Thank you, this is very helpful, Serena is my favorite female character from the anime (maybe because of some personal manners) and I was one of the kids watching the first episodes when they came up here. 
Actually I spend most the time with the games(I missed many seasons of the series when I was a kid because my mother didn't allowed me to watch it =_=°) and later I gave the newer episodes a try but it didn't fascinated me that much like the first episodes.
But it started to change as I've seen some of the black/white episodes, for example team rocket was really cool, maybe it just me, but all the characters seem to be more lively and interesting.
Then pokemon x and y where released and I love the game so much, and I was very courious about how the anime was going to be, so since then I'm watching every upcoming episode and I really love it. Ash also seems cooler to me (In the past I didn't really care that much about him or what girl matches him, maybe because I stuck with the games). 
I'm really looking forward to the next episodes of X and Y *_*
Well, that's why I'm maybe going to cosplay her, too in the future (but at the moment I'm working on my Palutena cos though)
PS: I hope my english is understandable.. xD

Hiii! Your cosplay is great!!

I did have one question. I am trying to make a skirt myself, and am having trouble with the waistbands. Mine ended up looking like one giant waistband, tho I made 3. If it isnt too much trouble, could you tell me how you did that portion? That would be a great help, as yours came out perfect! Thankies!
