So i found an awesome shirt with an image of the human anatomy on it from the csc and had to have it. i ended up using another ugly shirt for the waistband and some extra knit i had laying around. i think i need to add something to the bottom of the skirt.

suggestions?

Amazing dress- what a find!

Do you have enough of the 2nd t-shirt (looks coral on my screen) to make another band for the bottom? You could add a layer beneath the edge of the skirt rather than overtop like the waistband. Something to match the green in the short would also be sharp, I think.

Excellent job!

Very cute!  I like it the way it is too, but I can also see why you might feel it needs something else.  If you could come up with a fabric like the background green of the top part, maybe a ruffle on the hem, or a band if you're anti-ruffle?  I think repeating the green at the bottom might be more balancing than the coral.
