There's some form of tutorial if you can follow it without pictures.. but i might add a picture tutorial later

so i had this random ugly skirt in my drawers that is like knee legnth and made of jersey.
so i knew i needed to do something about it Smiley

the before - it was so gross Tongue

so I folded the skirt in half, cut it and then took the side seams off of it. with the bottom half of the skirt, i cut the side seams off of that as well and took the hem out and off. so i was left with equal pieces. I sewed the 2 pieces i got from the bottom half of the skirt and sewed those to the front panel.  then sewed the side seams back together.  then i cut the top piece on an angle, the middle in the opposite direction and left the bottom the way it was. Then i zig-zagged the raw edges to make a lettuce edge, making it ruffly.  i went decorative stitch crazy and put contrasting white stitches along the top and bottom of the waistband.  there was a draw string in black cord, so, I took that out and threaded purple ribbon through.

front you can see the purple ribbon and ruffles and it probably puts images to the description tutorial.

That's really cool and looks comfty! Smiley I've never done decorative stitching around the edges of fabric before but it looks really effective- you've inspired me to have a go.
