Hey Ladies!! I am sooo confused on making a tiered mini skirt like the ones they sell at Forever 21, like this.

http://www.wetseal.com/catalog/product.jsp?categoryId=893&productId=23555&color=BLACK

I want to make one for New Years Eve.

I know I need some lining fabric, but I am confused on how to make the tiers so short. 

Thanks in Advance  Grin

The tiers are actually probably all the same length, or close to.  They're just layered on the skirt lining.  Basically, you take your lining material, and your layers.  From the top down, your first layer would be at the top of the lining.  The next layer would be the same length as the first layer, but sewn about 1.5-2" down on the lining.  The third layer would be sewn the same distance down from the second, and so on.  If you held it so that the lining made a horizontal plane, the layers would fall down in equally spaced rows.  Make sense?

Yay!  And if you look closely at the picture, you can actually see where the second layer is attached, under the first one, and just a hint of where the third one starts.
