A few months ago, I bought a set of four dark brown and lace table placements at a local high-end consignment store. I took one of the placement and cut it down the middle. I simply inserted a lace panel between the shirt's side seams.
I love the addition of the lace panels to the new skirt, which was pretty simple to assemble. I didn't have to mess around with the bottom hem. I just needed to focus on the waistband and simply add elastic to the back part of the skirt.
