Hello all! As my local convention creeps around the corner I am trying to finish up my cosplay of Sophitia. What I am stuck on (and have had to re-do 3 times) is the skirt portion of her toga.

What I am stuck on is how to get the "flared" look and feel of her skirt. When I spin or move around, I want it to flounce a little bit. Reference photos are below and you can check out my profile to see my progress on it.

My only idea was to use an elastic waistband like I would with a lolita skirt to gather it, and then sew the two together.

Any other ideas would be GREATLY appreciated!!!

If the fabric is light enough the skirt will look just like on the art :)
