I bought this skirt awhile ago and I really like the style~
I found this fabric that would look really great in the same style, but I'm not exactly sure how to make it.
Is it basically a circle skirt with a big piece of fabric as a "waistband" or something?
And if it is how would I get the measurement to make the circle skirt or whatever?
Please help~~

It looks to me like a regular rectangle of gathered fabric, you could just measure the circumference of the skirt at the hem and then cut a rectangle to fit the measurements, gather it and then sew it to the waistband. Here's a video tutorial of how to gather fabric: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4jlXqkwaqTM

yes, the pleated part is like a circle skit. But the waistband, is just a long rectangle that has been tied together on the side.

No, two rectangles. Well actually the top might be more like a trapezoid, but the bottom is a rectangle where the top of the rectangle has been bunched up -or gathered is the sewing term- and sewn on the smaller rectangle. The bottom rectangle might be as much as 3 times longer than the top rectangle.

If you made this with a rectangle and a circle skirt, it would be wider at the bottom, but it wouldn't have that frilly look to it.
