Eveningwear — Pattern for Skirt

I came up with this pattern for the top 2 layers of the skirt. The topmost layer is labelled “Layer 1” in the pic. The layer directly under that is labelled “Layer 2”. To reduce bulk at the waistline, layer 2 will gather into a yoke piece at the back. This seems like it should work. Stay tuned.

Oh, that light colored fabric will be the bias binding around the edges of the skirt.

Here’s another pic of the Marchesa dress with the skirt that I am trying to emulate:
