So I got in an order I just didn't know if I could fulfill... the lady saw the punk rock twirly skirt I made for a friend of hers, and contacted me about a skirt, but then she told me that she wanted it to be pink. And green. And pastel. And not skully or scary. Those are just things I don't really do. Buuuut.... my incrediblazing local fabric shop came to the rescue. I went in looking for something pastel and polka dotty, because boy oh boy, nothing in my stash is pastel. And this popped into view, like a vision from God.
I think I may have heard a chorus of angels. Or that might have been Japanese elevator music being pumped in. Whatever.
So... I turned it into a circle skirt, adding in a waistband in my very favorite green cherry blossom fabric that managed to match like they were from the same collection (which, given that one was a couple years ago at Joann's and one is a current local fabric, I'm doubting).
I borrowed one of my mini Bird's friends for a model; she's 2 years older and a bit bigger than the girl this was made for, but it gives an idea:
(and I think it'll be a big hit, given that I had to practically pry her out of it)
