Oh my god you're awesome.  As is the skirt.  I love the style of ruffle you created.  I think it would look good if you decide to change the look later just by putting that red fringe over it.  The current ruffle would peek out from underneath.

Necessity (being broke) is the mother of invention, no?
I like the way the the black waistband and ruffle provides a frame for the skirt- and man, you did a great job on the ruffle- the pleats are so welldone, especially considering the stretchiness of t-shirt material. do share your tips, o wise one.

thanks! i will say this: an iron and quilting pins are your friends. iron copiously. even if it would be faster not to. even if it looks like you don't have to. i'd also recommend a sewing gauge (which i didn't use, but realized that it would've made life A LOT easier right after i'd finished pinning all the ruffles into place).
