 I actually sewed today! I had a little time between work and rehearsal, so I patterned out my Snow White skirt. I was hoping to make it a circle skirt, but I didn't buy enough fabric for that, since it wasn't my original plan for some reason. So it's a 3/4 circle skirt instead. I serged all the edges, and sewed it together after rehearsal, then pinned it on the form and tried to figure out what shape of petticoat it needed. 

So far, nothing looks right - I tried hoops, and I tried a couple different configurations of the net petticoat and net ruffles I had already made, and it just wasn't working. So I think instead of trying to reinvent the wheel, I'm just going to combine two petticoats in a pattern I already own (views B and C on Simplicity 2006). The only problem is, I last made this pattern years ago, and I've lost all but the first page of the pattern directions. I know it should be relatively straight-forward (gather one tier to the next tier etc), but if someone has the pattern directions laying around, is there any chance you can send me a picture of View C's instructions, so I know in what order the layers go together?  

In any case, on Friday, I'm going to pick apart the ruffles and such that I had already made for the petticoat, and start making them to this pattern instead. I hope it works! I really want this project done.
