This pattern doesn't call for a lining, but I wanted to line it since the skirt's wool. A commenter helpfully said that she lines gathered skirts by making folds (pleats) in a self-drafted lining. I dropped the lining in, matching up the side seams, and made folds until the lining was the same size as the skirt.
The waistband is then stitched over top of both layers. I was intimidated by the thought of how this would work, but it ended up being SUPER easy. (Thanks, Slapdash Sewist!)
I wore this to the office with this JCrew cropped jacket and pointy heels. (The shoes are the Nuncio from Nine West. It's the perfect dress shoe! The heel is high enough to give that sexy lift, but short enough to be comfortable and walkable. I have 2 pair, and ordered a black pair on sale from DSW yesterday! I'm all about buying in pairs [or triples] when I find something I love.)
