Crafting in Wonderland: Tie-dye bubble skirt

When I started sewing my mom gave me some fabric and clothes to pick apart for notions and fabric. One item she gave me was this tie-dye sarong like thing. It's really loud and not something I'd wear, usually. Last night I decided I'd try to make it work for me though. I need practice any way right? So I cut it , pinned it, added elastic and sewed it up in to a bubble skirt. Not exactly how I saw it in my head, but not too bad for my first attempt. And since it is short and paired with a plain black shirt it isn't too obnoxious.

What do you think?

I'm trying to use my sewing machine to make more than just purses and pillow cases. :)
