This time I wanted to ensure I made it with a black lining, though, and I did not risk going to Joann's only to find they didn't have what I wanted, so I went online. I also wanted to make sure I used tricot knit, and I'm not sure I have seen this at Joann's. I found it and ordered it.
When my black tricot arrived, I made the skirt up quickly and just in time—of course—for my December 2016 New Horizons Orchestra concert. Sadly, the skirt was not ready in time for my Medina Symphony concert in November and I wore pants because my other long concert skirt is just too over the top for that group and the short one I made is too short for being in the front row. :-(
This skirt is totally awesome. It is comfortable, falls nicely when I'm sitting, is totally unrestrictive, and looks good (and safely within the hump of the bell curve of convention—so strange to realize that matters to me).
One thing I did different on this skirt from either of the previous versions of it that I sewed is to use a wide nonroll elastic for the waistband. Since it's for more physical use, i.e., sitting and moving around in the chair, I wanted to be sure it would stay planted at my waist. Not too long ago I watched a Craftsy course, Next-Level Knits: Techniques for Structure & Style with Pam W. Howard, and learned about the wider nonroll elastic. (That is another great Craftsy course, and I love Pam Howard. She is another great teacher.)
