I've decided that the overskirt will be just sheer lace with a pleated edge. Problem is it looked too plain for my taste, so I decided to "fancy it up" and bead the lace.
Of course that means I also have to go back and bead all that lace around the under-skirt too. That's going to be a BIG job, and hopefully it doesn't take longer than this weekend. I wish I'd know I was going to do this before I sewed that lace onto the skirt - it would have been so much easier to bead then.
