Nautical Skirt

So I have had this "nautical" looking fabric (actually a bed sheet from D.I.) for about a year now and haven't really known what to do with it.  I made Lilly a dress from it HERE, and made Max's snakey friend from it as well, HERE.
I still had a butt load of material though and I was inspired by this look:
So I used the same technique as my Yoga top skirt HERE. And this is what I ended up with:
Um yeah, don't mind the Valentines decor. Or the fact that a 7 year old took this photo while sitting on the couch and watching Willy Wonka.  This was the best one too :(
The thing that makes me most angry, is I have a navy blue cardigan with ruffles on it, that I wanted so badly to wear with this today and I couldn't for the life of me find it.  It's going to bug me to no end until I find that thing.  Oh well I guess, there's always next time!
