thanks you guys!  Grin daiconharuko-your skirt is the greatest!

 i just used a wrap skirt i already had and folded it in half, placed it on the fold of my doubled fabric and traced around it. 2x for the two different fabrics.
 i put the two peices right sides together and sewed down the sides, turned it inside out and added the waistband tie thingy. i put a buttonhole in the waistband to pull the tie through. and i hemmed the bottom but it's pretty crappy.

it is a half circle but it becomes a bit smaller when you wear it because it overlaps.

if you don't have a wrap skirt to trace, here is a tutorial for making one from scratch (about halfway down the page) http://www.getcrafty.com/viewtopic.php?t=1965

i hope that helps you!

That is beautiful!  I love the fabrics you used!  I have also been pondering over that same tutorial wanting to make one myself, but I was too in love with the pacman sheet that I couldn't get over that I don't have a pacman sheet of my own.  Tongue   Thanks for proving that it looks great no matter what combo of fabrics you use!  Looks fantastic!
