Did you add a zipper? Or elastic waist?

You might want to mention that the horse hair is first sewn to the right side of the skirt, and you probably mean yoke instead of yolk :D

Regarding step 7, I don't understand the part where you fold the fabric inwards. Are you folding the fabric and the horse hair both or just the fabric? It looks like you're sewing the edge of the skirt to the horse hair in the previous picture and that you wouldn't have enough of the ends of the skirt to fold inwards twice.

Can this be done with a single skirt or do you need to do multiples? I don't think I have enough fabric for what I'm doing and really don't want to get more since it's a salvage project. Took an ugly bridesmaid dress and am turning it into a Sailor Jupiter outfit (I'll buy you a green dress but not a real green dress, that's cruel - If I had a million dollars, The Barenaked Ladies)

I'd just like to say this tutorial is amazing and thank you so much for posting it! And also, um, well I know you use your waist measurement for the yoke, but how did you decide how big to make the inside of the skirt to figure in the amount of gathering you did? Cause if you just made the skirt for your waist, gathering it would make it too small so did you just like double the inner circumference? Sorry if I asked a dumb question and thank you so much for this tutorial!

Is there a huge difference between soft and stiff braids?

YES. This just fixed a massive issue I was having figuring out a costume piece. You're a lifesaver! What sort of fabric did you use/do you recommend for this method?

How did you do the ruffles so well? They're perfect!
