Isn't this basic? Haven't I been told this dozens of times?
It turns out that it's a really good thing I took the skirt apart. I had to iron all the sewing creases out of it and then remark it with all the pleat marks and zipper stops and the like. As I was marking it I realized that I had cut the fabric a full size bigger than I am supposed to be making. This would have been a worse problem than having the fabric inside out because it would fit wrong or not fit at all. I cut it wrong because I didn't iron the fabric after I took it out of the dryer, I just folded it up and then later cut it out. It's imperative that you iron your fabric before you start cutting it out; even small wrinkles can make a big difference in how the fabric acts when you cut it. Lucky for me, I cut it too big instead of too small. If I had cut it too small I'd be off to the fabric store for more fabric.
Sewing tip #1: IRON YOUR FABRIC BEFORE YOU CUT THE PATTERN OUT.
Sewing tip #2: MEASURE TWICE, CUT ONCE.
