Hoop Skirts

This description of the Hoop Skirt written by Mark Twain was originally published in the Virginia City, Territorial Enterprise in 1866 under the title 'The Fashions' 

I just love them and I made my modern version in a stiff cotton gauze with the hoops formed using satin bias binding threaded with boning.  Not sure if it will become a pattern but I'm happy to describe in detail how I did it if anyone is interested.
