I know how you twist it and tie it up to dry that way, but I'm thinking of the little wrinkles that seem to always be there.. is there a special fabric that's wrinkly already or do you make it that way?

I just got some fabric from Joann's that's was already wrinkled. She said it was called gauzy fabric. You might want to do what I did and just ask someone at your fabric store what they have that is already wrinkled. Good luck.

Why is it that I can no longer buy anything that has a slight chance I could make it myself? Even if I don't know how to make it, or it's cheaper to buy...I can no longer buy it because "I could make that myself".

Eh, gauzy fabric isn't always crinkled.  I got some at Walmart, too, probably the same stuff as skier.  It's 100% cotton, a nice loose weave (It IS gauzy, but that's beside the point) and crinkled.  And it's called crinkle cotton.  Or at least, most of the seamstresses I know call it that.  It's probably not the technical name, but if you asked someone if they had crinkle cotton, they'd know what you were talking about.  If you ask for "gauzy fabric", which is even more ambiguous than "crinkle cotton" you could get anything from crepe to cheesecloth.
