I love the skirt! I was wondering about the panels. What type of fabric are they, stretchy or woven? Do you have a waistband on the panel part, or is it just finished on the top? Also, how do you get into the skirt, I mean, is it a zip or pull on type skirt? Just curious.

I love the stars, great idea! Do you think you could take a pic of the panel turned so I could see the shape of it better? I'd like to try this out.

Thanks!

Wowee! That is insanely cute  Shocked.  I have a skirt almost identical to it but it a bit too big - I suppose I could do something similar!  It's too hard for me to take it in with the pleats and all!

I would have answered sooner, but being out camping = no internet access!
The panel fabric is something I bought at a fabric store.  I just walked to the black fabric section and picked the texture that matched my skirt the most.  Sorry if that doesn't help much!  It's thicker than typical fabric that has patterns on it.  If you held it to the light, you probably wouldn't be able to see through it.

The fabric is not stretchy and there is no waistband on the panel part (like you asked).  The skirt already had a zipper on the back, so I didn't need to worry about it.  Luckily for me, the zipper didn't go all the way down, so when I cut many inches off the bottom, the zipper wasn't in the way. 
And yes, I will add a photo to show you the panel shape.  I made my own pattern for the panels, it was easy so you should be able to make one also!

Any other questions that I didn't answer?  Hopefully the photo will load.
PS.  The star looks mishapen because I didn't smooth it down before I took the photo.  The star is actually shaped perfectly.  Also, the top looks weird, I forgot to hide the other side of the skirt, and it blends in and you can see the inside of the opposite side.

You should try it and then post the photo!

Great resizing, looks way better than it did before. Also, the star buttons are great.

I know!  I love my boy.  He's the handsome guy in the first photo.
But, I have a foster kitty from my Animal Shelter, whom I've dubbed my 'Craft Kitty.'
She is always next to me when I'm ironing, sewing, cutting fabric, or doing anything fun!
I have sooo many photos of her, I will have to post some later.

Well my friend got her skirt and says it fits her perfectly.  Glad I bought it and added the panels.
