I love the way this skirt looks and I want to make it so badly. I really don't know how to get it quite the way it is.

Thanks guys

The bottom layer looks like denim to me with paint splatters, rips, and fraying. You can use a metal file to achieve that. I've seen fabric like the top layer, but I don't know what it is called, around 2000 I think was when people were wearing those broomstick skirts that were all crinkled and wrinkled, it looks like one of those, that has been cut in a couple places, and maybe you can swipe a lighter or any flame past the edges to singe the edge.

Maybe the outer layer is strips of tee shirt fabric left to curl up?

That is my take on it. Good luck! =D

Thanks! I think I may be able to manage that. I think I even have a broomstick skirt running around here. Cheesy

The denim is a pair of pants.  The actual skirt is on top of them.

A lot of gathering and a half-hazard bottom edge. You'll want to wear shorts underneath or put a lining since the material looks thin and light. With that much gathering you don't want anything too thick.

Yeah, I'd bet boots that that's a broomstick skirt, from off the rack somewhere, that's been hacked away at the hem.  Just a few years ago, they had ones that looked vaguely pleated, as well as gathered.
