It's okay because I didn't really mean it

Since my school doesn't buy into stereotypes at ALL, today was Goth Day *eye roll* durring our spirit week...but being positively brimming with school spirit, I made a skirt;

on my nasty floor

a close up of the lace detailing along the waistline. I destressed it and ripped it, I also hemmed the bottom of my skirt with it


the back, orthe thing that closest resembles a shot of the back


In order to make this skirt you have to know how to make a circle skirt
You follow all the steps to make a circle skirt, except you don't round the edges
After you've cut a hole into the center of the fabric, you hem all four of the edges after you cut it to the length you want.

You will repeat this step as many times as you want, the more layers you have, the poofier it is.I recomend working with a thiner fabric, and tulle. Your first layer should be the the shortest, the  next a 2-3 inches longer, and so on and so forth so that each layer is visible.

You then sew the pieces onto the waistband, layering so that the corners don't overlap

and TADA!

You have just been treated to the crappiest tutorial ever! I hope you enjoyed it and if you have any questions feel free to PM me

And now my Retro-fab skirt. A boy in class said I looked like a 50's house wife (hm...)
The waist line was pretty plain so I sewed a obi like belt. It was a thick piece of white fabric which was bisected by four ribbons alternately turquoise and black, which tied in the front. I didn't get any pictures of it before it fell apart. But here's the skirt anyways

My very first A-line ever and I did it without a pattern

my floor wearing it

and on me, sorry for the awkward angle

"goth" day? lordy. that's weird. Um....when I was in high school 25% of my school was "gothic" so yeah. Spirit week was usually only for the groovy kids. I think the skirt is swell. I would wear it whether it's goth day or not. very cute. and anyway, I <3 fishnets with seamlines. I have those...

Now the wintertime is coming,
The windows are filled with frost.
I went to tell everybody,
But I could not get across.
Well, I wanna be your lover, baby,
I don't wanna be your boss.
Don't say I never warned you
When your train gets lost.

HOW hot is your skirt?? While 'goth day' sounds like a a very very strange thing to do, I'm not a goth myself and I sure would love to make a skirt like yours.
Haha, most people think I'm a goth even though I'm not, because I have naturally black hair and very dark eyes. Figures. Shame they don't get the idea that I'm not, even when I'm wearing bright colours Wink

So yeah, would a tutorial be possible? Even just something short and sketchy to outline how you made that lovely skirt would be fabulous, it's really gorgeous and it fits you something lovely.

Very cute little "goth," outfit.  I don't even remember having spirit week in high school...Then again, I didn't have much respect for my highschool...I remember it being a sad place where anyone that seriously looked the way you are dressed in these photos was ridiculed unmercillesly (sp?).

I <3 fishnets with seamlines. I have those...

Oh oh...seamlines.  Yum.  I'm having seamlines tattooed onto my legs in a few days.  I put my time-off request in at work today!!  I'm so excited Smiley

Where exactly in the yard?  On the croquet lawn?  By the bird bath?  Marty, where do you think we should bury these babies with webbed feet?  The back yard is getting very crowded i think.  positively littered with corpses.  First daddy's and now duck babies.
