I wanted to finish the tiered skirt I started making earlier so I went ahead and took my own advice and expanded the pink tier.  Now the skirt will fit Aidan and I’m really glad I did.  🙂  I took the seams out, added a panel on each side and restitched everything.  I’m happy with the way it turned out.  Gathering has been a weak point of mine but I think the 2 layers of gathers on this skirt helped me a lot.  I do wonder if the skirt is a little on the sheer side and what, if anything, I can do about it.  Is it possible or even advisable to line it?  Any thoughts?
