I used a different pattern for the skirt than the one Susan had. The skirt will fit a 33" waist. I bought the black Guipure on Mood Fabric but it's a poly which I wasn't thrilled with and I didn't quite get enough and had to piece it at the back seam area. This skirt had the royal blue silk under the guipure and then a blue cotton underlining, then a black silk for the inside lining. This took me a whole lot of hours to make but it was fun and I learned new things having never worked with this lace. I mainly learned I don't want to work with it again.
