So.  This took FOREVER, but it's SO worth it.  I finally made my 25 yard skirt. It was based on this tutorial. 
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=404957.0

I decided to to a drawstring waist with some bias trim from a child's skirt that was falling apart rather than using any elastic in the waist.  Also, I added some trim to the top panel, as somehow during this process I managed to get a big tear horizontally along the belly.  I wore this to my class yesterday, and the gals loved it! I hope you will, too.

That's very beautiful, the gold especially. It's so good to be able to make your own costumes for special things like belly dancing. Makes it ever so much more enjoyable when it's budget friendly as well as super fun Smiley.

Beautiful. Is it taffeta? Must have been quite difficult to work with.  Turned out really well.

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

Thank you all for your lovely compliments.  Yes, it took forever to ruffle all 20-bagillion yards of fabric.  My ruffler foot was working overtime.  It isn't tafeta, but I'm not so sure what fiber content all the pieces are.  Honestly, I used an old curtain for the top, a sheet from a thrift store for another layer and pretty/shiny fabric from my local craft store for the other layers.  It is really, really fun to dance with.  I am the only lady with earth tones. The other ladies have greens and purples and pinks.  I might have to make another one...maybe a patchwork of all sorts of colors.
