Quite creative and they look great on you! I wear skirts and dresses so this gives me ideas for things to make for myself. Thanks for sharing!

2nd-to last is SO stunning! I love the combination of colors, textures, and patterns. And you said "cheating" with burning the edges, but I say "finishing perfectly." Love.

LOVE the cream / brown one with that gorgeous panel!  I make these top-down using a gathering foot on my machine; I just cut strips (8" wide for 4 tiers, 12" for 3 tiers works for my height) and seam them into one looooong strip.  Then I cut the top strip to the length I want to fit my hips, and add the next tier using the gathering foot.  Once I reach the end of that tier, I cut the long strip off, and start on the next tier.  Once I have the number of tiers I want, I stitch what will be the back seam, stitch a channel in the top for an elastic waist, and then sew that looooong bottom hem.  I love using numerous 45" wide prints; they give the skirt a very patchwork look.  I've also used squares cut from men's plaid shirts which was a TON of work but the skirt is really cool.  But I'm starting tribal dance classes, and I'm now in LOVE with the hot pink skirt w/ the waist detail!!!
