Suzannah of Adventures in Dressmaking put together a quick and simple skirt tutorial inspired by all the short, gathered skirts with waistbands she's been seeing. Her skirt was inspired by The J.Crew "bungalow skirt" and a few other skirts by ModCloth, and Anthro. Suzannah used some nice textured nylon/rayon fabric. Check out Suzannah's tutorial and her inspirations to make one of these for yourself.
Kwik Sew offers a pattern (KP-3794) for this style skirt here:
