First, this is a photo of Priscilla Hernandez on stage performing, she used my tutorial to make a layered pixie skirt using organza fabric. Photography by Duncan Trisquel.

This is so easy it should be illegal. Seriously.  I had some extra fabric laying around that I used on top of dressers, table displays, etc.  The length was perfect for  making this type of skirt.  These days, fabric is so expensive, you are better off buying a curtain panel or table cloth to make this skirt. Wanna learn?!

First, I would suggest starting off with a fabric that measures close to what I used, which was 50″ x 60″ if you want to achieve a mid lenth skirt. You can also make them layered by using various lengths as shown in the first photo.  Cut a line in the fabric, in the area shown in the photo below, and try it on to fit your waste correctly. Sew under the edges of the cut material, and wahlah!  If you want elastic, you can always add that in too, but I just went for the easier route.

Really?  Are you serious? Completely. Something tells me I am going to have a ton of these style skirts in my closet very soon. They will be great for any of the following styles: pixie, wench, renaissance, pirate, gypsy, etc.
