Here is the completed Simplicity 7216 Hoopskirt. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out.
This is made from a JoAnns Bottomweight Cotton - a nice weight for this project with a tight weave.
I made the larger of the two hoopskirts. I shortened the length by two rows of hooping, so the largest hoop is a little less than 108".
To add a little interest I scalloped the bottom edge of the hoopskirt like I had seen on an original. I cut the scalloped edge by hand and finished the edges using a satin stitch on my sewing machine.
