Knit Ruffle Skirt

This is another simple skirt made completely from knit fabric.
I originally got the inspiration awhile ago, from Dana of MADE.
She made the Can-Can skirt which is pattern is available in her shop.
I just simplified the skirt a bit.
I am actually going to cheat today and
not really give you a step by step tutorial....
Please don't hate me... 
I cut out 2 of these, 
you can cut on the fold, 
but this was made from a whole bunch on knit scraps. 
See! Check out all the knit scraps I got from my Mother-in-law!
And this is just the blue!
I cut the knit to about 11/2" and tensioned ruffled it on my sewing machine. 
The added it to the skirt.  
The waistband is simple elastic.
I only added 3 colors because knit can be heavy. 
I didn't want the skirt to weigh more than the girl wearing it!
This about all the color combinations you can make!?
