I used your basic process to make a skirt like this ^^ I used a really sheer fabric and it was more than twice the circumference of my waist so it would be really ruffly. Thanks for this tute!

uh! sorry about answering so late! ok, I'm going to try to explain it as good as I can. You mark the centre and from there measure to one of the sides the double of the length you want the folds to be. Now take that mark and bring it to the centre, like that you should have created one fold. Secure it in place with pins. For doing the rest of the folds take the measurement and bring it where the firts fold starts. do the same with all the fabric in both sides.

Y hope you understand it, if not, tell me and I will take some photos explaining it.
