The Velvet Hussar: The Skirt

Last night after work, I dove into an attempt to finish my velvet skirt.
I did pretty well, actually. The pleats are secured to the waistband, the hem is even after a little trimming here and there, and the hem tape is stitched to the raw edge of the hem as well....and that's as far as I got.

This skirt is heavy, and I definitely need to put my hoop on an actual waistband. I may even need to put more steel in my hoop by way of a few more hoops.
Here she is so far (once again on my too-big-for-me dress form) without a hem:
