I have made this skirt a ton of times. My favorite was using Christine Jonson's Icicle Knit. It has shimmery sparkles and I made it for New Years Eve. Then I had a theater opening to attend and pulled it out in HOT July. The flow of the skirt when you walk is fabulous.
It is a cunning skirt. When you stand still it looks normal. When you walk, the back flows behind you saying "The Queen has Arrived and she looks really great."
