Tweed!  ;)

Seriously, it's better done with softer, drapy fabrics.  Polys and
rayons and mixes with these in are fine, but will give more 'bounce'
than cottons, as with the purple one.  Fine cotton and linen are perfect
if you want the broomstick crinkles.  Silk habotai works a treat for a
bit of extra luxury!  :)

 That looks brilliant.  I reckon I could make that.  I might go in search of

I have seen it done nicely in corduroy too, I have some that I have been
planning to make a tiered skirt with.  If it doesn't go out of style before
I have time.

(Ok back to studying now I promise, except that we are moving, so really its
back to packing! Big move tomorrow!)

Yes, but use baby cord, and make it about half as wide, or you'll feel
like it weighs a ton and it'll stick out like Granny's lampshade!

Re: Tiered skirt instructions
I bought a corduroy one for my daughter last weekend when we shopped for her
winter wardrobe.  It's a very light cord - a  bit hot for the real thing
here, even in winter!  I was interested to see that tiered skirts were very
popular here in summer and are still popular for winter.

I've seen them in various color combos that make me wonder if Ray
Charles is speccing their RTW fabric choices. They'll have an array of
soft blues and then a GLARING NEON ORANGE. And the "one of these
things" piece doesn't pick up a tone in a print or otherwise relate to
anything; it's just out there!

I'd make the fabrics all of one family, somehow. Might do one in denim
& bandana & square dancer print. I have lots of prints that depict the
same items (Cajun food and MG masks, cell phones, bicycles) and this
would be a nifty way to use up UFO scraps.

And I've seen RTW with lace strips or panels.

You could make each tier as a patchwork of rectangles. That would look
cool, and hide the patch pockets.

Must...have...pockets...

I bought one made from sari bits at a costume show last month.  It was
worth the $18 cuz I HATE gathering.

Saw some yesterday at a hippy-dippy sort of indoor fair. They (the
Indian laborers) had made the tiers out of very sheer loud prints.
Colorful ribbon top-stitched at each tier intersection, to provide
stability and additional strength (also because the stitching wouldn't
look so good viewed through the layers).
