So, I just discovered this site and I think I'm in love.  So, I thought I might share something I made yesterday Smiley

I got this fabric from a great garage sale... pretty much the best way to get fabrics cheap!

************************************
Pretty simple tutorial. 

I didn't have a pattern for this I just kind of started making it.  This is how I did it.   You can kind of refer to the roughly drawn picture below.

If you can't see this image (for some reason it's not showing up for some people... either refer to the image above where you can see me pulling the skirt out and cut the pieces to that shape or try clicking here.)

First, you make a waistband.  I put the buttons and stuff on last, but you could do that first if you want... whatever.

Then comes the time consuming part.  Basically you cut long pieces of fabric in triangular shapes as seen in the image. (Make them however long you would like them... I made them so the skirt would fall just below the knees).   I did two different sizes and alternated them as I sewed.  I used the first  one I cut as a rough pattern for the others. 

Third, you sew them all together until you have enough to fit around the bottom of your waistband.  Then, you attach it to the waistband and put in a lining if you like.  It took me a little while but it's pretty simple.  Hope that helps some Smiley If you have any questions feel free to ask.

That's odd.... I can see it... hmmm... I'll try to fix that.  Sorry.  If all else fails just look at the photo of me pulling it out and cut the pieces to look like those Smiley
