This is the look I'm going for, but longer:First, I cut out dozens of of little squares, each about 2x3" Then I put Fray Check around the edges of every single one of them. (This would be a good time for a LOTR marathon, because it takes FOREVER!)Then I took a skirt I already owned and traced around it to make my skirt pattern.
Pin all of your squares in tiered, offsetting rows down and around the whole skirt.
Sew on each row, lifting up the flaps from the previous row as you go.
