Many of you asked why I ripped out the original green version. There really wasn't anything wrong with it, other than the stockinette part was too "holey". And honestly, I hate wearing slips unless I absolutely have to. And I really didn't want to try knit that green cotton tighter (because I'm not crazy about knitting with cotton yarn. Dishcloths and washcloths, yes. Clothing, not so much.) So this yarn from the stash, knit at a little tighter gauge, worked out just fine...
Lacy Skirt with Bows

Greetings From Knit Cafe
yarn: Lion Brand Microspun
needles: size 4 and 5
I made quite a few modifications with this one...
I knit this at a little tighter gauge than the pattern (6st/inch). Cast on the amount of stitches for a medium and then decreased at the waist to the number of stitches for a small. Also shortened it to be just above the knee.
Knit this in the round instead of flat. Changed the decreases too…worked a few rounds of dec once the pattern switched to stockinette and then did 4 rounds of decreases at the waist in the last 3 inches. I think I might have worked the eyelet waistband a little differently too.
