Ohhh the frustration of what size hoop skirt to wear!
It can stop you in your tracks and leave you stumped. It puts a catch into even the best laid plans.
After all you can't create that dress you always dreamt of without having your foundation pieces completed first! Of course this means conquering the dreaded question that everyone who must wear a hoop skirt is forced to ask; just what sized hoop should I be wearing? A question that I myself have spent many hours pondering.
