I made a costume that required five tries to get the turquoise dye right, and therefore had an abundance of turquoise cotton.   One piece, a beautiful gauze weave, was begging to be a skirt.  So I interlined it with some cotton/poly for shape and drafted up a quick panel skirt.  Somehow, I decided to shape the hem into points instead of rounding it.    The suspenders are some leftover trim from a friend's Rainbow Dash costume.   It's so fun to wear.

Action shots:  In the ocean.  In November.  Yes, it was cold.

And the points on the hem (each one has a differently shaped button at the point):


This took much longer than I originally intended it to, and I absolutely love it.
