So I got this really, really obnoxious fabric.  I thought it was really pretty, but everyone else I showed it to thought it was really ugly.  It's a jersey knit with three different patterns on it.  I wish I'd taken a picture before I made the skirt, but here's how the fabric looks:

Most of the fabric was the white part, then the orange border and the little strip of purple, then another orange border and the blue for maybe 10 inches.  It was also dirt cheap.  I really liked the colors, but apparently this is not an aesthetically pleasing combination to most people...

Anyway, I decided this beautiful monstrosity must become a skirt!  I kind of based it off of the anticraft's petticoat skirt (http://www.theanticraft.com/archive/imbolc07/petticoat.htm) but I made it short.  I also messed up a LOT, and apparently I can't do ruffles to save my life, so my roommate (Merliquin to you all) helped me out a ton.  Like, pretty much all of it.  Anyway here it is!

Obligatory twirly shot.

This one shows the length better.  It comes to just below my knee.

I think boarder fabrics are so weird when you see them at the store, but you've done a great job with one!

I'm with you, I think it's cute... albeit, an odd combo of patterns.  My favorite one is the blue at the bottom.

Nice job!

I'm down w/ a personal swap now and then!  PM me!
