However, it turned out super cute I think. Normally pettiskirts are made with nylon chiffon, but Joannes doesn't carry that material (what the heck?!), but I found some similar fabric (slightly more stretchy though) in the clearance aisle and I think it worked out just fine.
I would offer you a tutorial, but you're better off just looking here. But I'll give you the approximate measurements I used for my pettiskirt: --Or not. Sorry--can't find the paper that I wrote the measurements on right now, I will though when I find it!
The pettiskirt is sewn in a tiered fashion, doubled-as in, there are two layers.

And here it is on our gorgeous model. I couldn't resist putting pearls on her! Too bad I forgot the hair bow--I guess that makes the pics null and void. No, not really, she's adorable without a hair bow!
