Since my school doesn't buy into stereotypes at ALL, today was Goth Day *eye roll* durring our spirit week...but being positively brimming with school spirit, I made a skirt;
on my nasty floor
a close up of the lace detailing along the waistline. I destressed it and ripped it, I also hemmed the bottom of my skirt with it
And now the whole outfit, I had already come home and taken my makeup off, but I can get pictures if you're interested in seeing it.

In order to make this skirt you have to know how to make a circle skirt
You follow all the steps to make a circle skirt, except you don't round the edges http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=12439.0
After you've cut a hole into the center of the fabric, you hem all four of the edges after you cut it to the length you want.
You will repeat this step as many times as you want, the more layers you have, the poofier it is.I recomend working with a thiner fabric, and tulle. Your first layer should be the the shortest, the next a 2-3 inches longer, and so on and so forth so that each layer is visible.
You then sew the pieces onto the waistband, layering so that the corners don't overlap
You have just been treated to the crappiest tutorial ever! I hope you enjoyed it and if you have any questions feel free to PM me
And now my Retro-fab skirt. A boy in class said I looked like a 50's house wife (hm...)
The waist line was pretty plain so I sewed a obi like belt. It was a thick piece of white fabric which was bisected by four ribbons alternately turquoise and black, which tied in the front. I didn't get any pictures of it before it fell apart. But here's the skirt anyways
My very first A-line ever and I did it without a pattern
my floor wearing it
and on me, sorry for the awkward angle
