I had it in my head that I wanted a white tiered skirt for the summer. It was a fun experience even though I ended up going to Fabricland 4 times in total! I used a gauze fabric and lined it with broadcloth. The lining isn't tiered - just a basic A-line shape. The skirt is super comfortable. The only thing I'm slightly unhappy about is that the lining rides up around my hips a bit and get stuck under the skirt so you can see a white line if I don't straighten it out. I don't think it bothers me enough to change it though :) The lace was a later decision and I love it!
For the waist I dipped the front down 11/2" (probably could've done 2) and made a knit waistband about 4" wide. I ended up slipping a wide elastic into it so it didn't feel like it was falling off.
I definitely don't like self-portraits - can you tell?!? But here I am at 6 months pregnant :)
My camera is not very good and has a really hard time photographing white!
