Well-- I finally garnered the motivation to just finish the skirt once and for all.
I probably should've stopped once I finished basting the pieces, but my urge to sew overtook me and I finished the darn thing, eheheh... it didn't take long in my frenzy-- but afterwards I felt remorse for having finished it.
Alas... you can't keep a crafter from crafting.
So, to recount what was used:
High quality stretch velvet in black
Venetian lace trim in black
Ruffle lace trim in black
Black satin ribbon
Pattern and design by yours truly.

I didn't end up using button or a zipper, as the velvet was stretchy enough so that I didn't need to use them at all.
I need to make a minor adjustment to the fit of the waist as it's too stretchy, but other than that it is peachy.
