I used the red gingham as lining. And used my blue gingham as my exterior fabric. I made the skirts slightly A-line and gathered at the waist. I'm going to use a zipper for the back for ease of dressing.
Now I like the long length which would be more 1900's style...but as I want to use this for dancing it will have to be the shorter length.
I put a few tucks in and then a wide hem. That way if later I decide I want it long I can let it down.
