For this party skirt, I made the base skirt from lavender dupioni silk, and the overskirt from navy blue tulle. I decided to add a gathered belt using left-over blue tulle, and left enough in the back for a big bow. I had a lot of trouble figuring out the waistline, but eventually realized the fabric with lace should also have interfacing (contrary to the instructions, which indicate the interfacing goes on the waistband pieces without lace).
Base skirt: lavender dupioni silk
Overskirt: navy blue tulle
Neon pink invisible zipper
