The expensive pettiskirts (Kyia Eve...mispelled, I think) are made from chiffon. I paid 90 bucks for daughter's pettiskirt and it's so freakin' adorable that I could just cry.

The lady that wrote those instructions said it took her about 8 hours to make her first pettiskirts. She said she can make them in about 4 hours now, if she works really hard.
