Steal this look- ruffled skirt

So Claire discovered the similarities between the skirt I made for the Treasure City Fashion Show and this one in Phillip Lim’s Spring 2009 Collection

I made my skirt from an existing lined tiered silk skirt that had an unfortunate accident in the wash.  I started by cutting the silk skirt into strips.  I took the lining and made a short skirt with a side zipper.  I took the strips of silk and machine sewed them to the skirt starting from the bottom and working my way up.  I used a strip of the lining fabric and some interfacing to make a waistband.

Total $ spent = Just my time.  I had the notions in the house.
