I've wanted a skirt made from this material in this colour for months, and finaly made it. It aint perfect, but I love it  Tongue

I improvised, so there's not much I can explain about it's construction (which, as you can see, is reaaally basic).

I wanted it to resemble a tutu a bit, so I made different layers of this..ahm.. material, to give it the look and movement I wanted. (The only problem is that it weights NOTHING, so when the wind blows and I'm not quick enough, everyone can see my 'I <3 GEEKS' underwear. [Or my hooker garters, if they're lucky.])
I didnt hem the edges, as it made the skirt really 'stiff'. I melted them a bit with a lighter instead, so that they don't fray.

My legs look pink and chubby. They're chubby, but not pink. (I'm wearing pinkish-purple-blah fishnets)

Thanks for looking! Smiley

I think that is very cute Smiley And I think the word you might be looking for is Fray

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

The fabric looks like chiffon to me.
