|Ignore the red ribbon, I only wanted to try the front gather and haven't yet found a ribbon to match the fabric.|
The skirt is finished, sans trims (which I still need to attach and finish pleating). I think I'll add another tier of trims on the hem. Also, I think I need to add some sort of ties to the skirt, to tie it back against my legs; now it's a bit too voluminous, even though I do like it that way too. I wanted to try the overskirt on with the skirt to adjust the lenght and the waist and to see if I need more trim on the hem of the skirt. I do.

|A bit wonky here, it's just pinned on. the white bit at the hem is the lining of the overskirt back piece, it won't show once I've hemmed it and put on the trims.|

|Before I put in the placket to hide the closure gap. I made a little train on the skirt :)|
|Mock-up overskirt, I still wonder if this would be a better shape and length.|
