Your skirt is wicked. I'll would rock it with some tights and boots or even as a belt.

The speckles are a result from the 3  shades Of  Rit dye that I mixed to get that earthy color.
Folk be hatin' on Rit but I like  the organic finish  it gives on white cotton.
The waistband is a stretchy material  without any type of closure. I will post a flowchart later.

Here is another top  I made  using a tee shirt. I dyed  the white tee with rit. Added a  waistband, some lace trim  and used  the remaints from the tee shirt to make the flower details.

omgmarissa don't  be scurrrrd of the ruffler, It  look may  look like a mass  of metal but it was pretty easy to use once  you  get  into the  flow  of  things.
You can even make and apply  ruffles in one operation.
Only  thing is there are a few  guidelines you must ruffle by.... you  can only  use  straight  stitching and  check to see  if the needle  clears  the needle hole or  you will end up  with a broken  needles. Also the lenght of the stitch determines the fullest of the ruffles.

Another trick of the trade  for  making gathers without the Ruffler
is to sew with elastic thread instead of  regular thread in the  bobbin.  Then  stay stitch with regular thread   under the first row to stop the elasticity in the ruffle.

=http://pictures.parisfan.org/displayimage.php?album=133&pos=5] Paris Hilton's Dress[/url] I really don't like her though! But I am in love with this dress and I hope to make one kinda similar to it.

Wow I'm feeling that dress!(but not Paris) It does look alittle like  mine but  with more high quality fabrics.
The pattern design was easy to make. It took me only a few hours to make.
Assuming that  you already  know some pattern designing and since I don't have time to make a flowchart I will have to explain with  words to the best of  my ability....I hope that  this sense.

You'll need to measure and  cut these major pieces in accordance with your body size.
You'll need Cording for 4 pcs of  straps
2 triangles to make v-neckline
1 rectriangle to cover the midriff
"a circle skirt pattern "  for the bottom (there are some tutorials on here)
and miles  of farbric strips to make into  ruffles

To assemble 
fold the rectangle in half  to mark the  middle (this  is front )
sew 1 triangle on each side of the folded end
then sew close seam (this is the back) to form a Bodice
Now sew the bodice on to the top of circle skirt's waistline to form the dress.
Make the ruffles and sew them on in layers to the egde of the skirt hem. 
zigzag stitch some rows of  thin elastic around the top edge of the midriff and around the armpits for a snug fit.
sew on  shoulder straps  and  on the side  of each triangle to tie around the  back.

ooo i need this. so do you need to factor in extra fabric when doing this...im really interested.
You  will need to make the lenght of the fabric a bit  longer, depending on the  fullest  of the gathers/pleats.

I know this is prolly a dumb question, but what exactly is a "ruffler"? I'm assuming it's something that helps you add ruffles to your clothes but do you attach it to your sewing machine or is it separate?  Embarrassed

Btw, that skirt is really hot  Wink
Yep! A ruffler  is a  little attachment for your sewing  machine   that looks  like this
You put it on the presser foot thing on to make instant  ruffles and Pleats.

It's like  upgrading from dail up to high speed internet.
