If you havent done so already i would suggest searching for simple flamenco dress patterns and scale it down to look like a skirt. Only a suggestion.

Not sure on the skirt but a fabbo lady told me how to make the ruffles.
Cut a piece on material to look like a ring doughnut, cut it through so it looks like a letter 'C' then sew the inner side in a straight line onto the skirt and coz its shaped as a circle the outer edge will ruffle out and look very flamenco-ey.
