This is my second skirt for The Summer of No Pants Skirt Sewing Challenge (http://hideousdreadfulstinky.blogspot.com/2010/05/summer-of-no-pants-skirt-sewing.html)

I call this one my Minty Fresh skirt.  It is made from t-shirt knit fabric from my stash.  For the bottom ruffle, I sewed together a few lengths of white t-shirt knit--about 1 1/2 times longer than the bottom edge of the skirt.  Then I folded it in half lengthwise and ruffled along the raw edges.  I then sewed the right sides together and when it flipped down I ended up with a very neat ruffle.  It flows well and is very comfy.  My only compliant is that the material is thinner than I realized and it is a bit revealing!  I will definitely need to buy or make some slips.

Nice work! I really like the color combo.

I too like the colours

If you say 'plz' because it's shorter than 'please',I'll say 'no' because it's shorter than 'yes'.
