i made this from a t-shirt that was too big, the waistband is from the t-shirt and the blue fabric is tshirt fabric i bought. it turned out a little more cheerleader-ish than i was expecting, but im still happy with it. i think i need cheerleader-style spanky-pants though, cause the skirt goes way up when i spin around     
oh and i dont think the skirt is quite as short as it looks in the second picture




the back

(sorry my mirror's so splotchy and gross)

Spanky pants? Excuse me while I fall over laughing! I've never heard them called that.

That skirt is so cute! I love it. Great job.

the blue part was just a really long rectangle, and then i folded it into pleats, ironed it, and sewed along the top to hold the pleats. does that help at all? i dont really know how to explain about the pleats, but if you just fool around with overlapping the fabric different ways, you can probably figure it out
