I fell lucky and found some really high quality embroidered lace on eBay - it was listed as designer remnant and is soooo softy and flowing. The lining is Prada self-lined crepe from Minerva Crafts. If you haven't given this stuff a go yet I'd highly recommend it!
The skirts were left to hang overnight and then trimmed where they had fallen out of shape. The hem of the lace layer was finished with black satin bias tape. I actually really like how that created a band around the bottom.
In an attempt to use some college skills aquired this year and make my tutor proud I sat and handstitched (I never thought I was a handsticth person - total convert) the inside of the waistband down to the lining with a slip sticth. Couple of fastenings on there just to keep it in place.
Pretty pleased with how this turned out - it does gape a bit at the back so unsure how to take it in a fraction now its all sewn up and made from one single piece! (ie no side seams) Any suggestions gratefully received!
