As you know, I was not happy with the flounce at the bottom of Simplicity 4173. I thought of many options and appreciate all of you who gave input. I finally spotted some Viennese lace at JoAnns that I thought would work. I couldn't believe that it was $14.00 a yard! Thank goodness for the 50% off coupon. because I needed about 1 1/2 yards. I also got a coordinating lace for the sleeves. I would have liked to have just hemmed the bottom, but after cutting off the flounce, it was too short. I didn't have enough fabric to make another flounce or band at the bottom. All in all, I'm pretty satisfied with it, although it is a little more snug around the hip than I would like. BUT, I LOVE the feel of this fabric.
