I made this for my baby using a fat quarter of fabric for the skirt and ribbons from a set of scrapbooking trims...I'm still a novice at sewing, but I think it turned out okay!

Well done!  I don't think I'd have the patience to sew the ribbons on.

I think it would be comparable to a size for 18 months...this sounds weird, but I liked a pattern that I saw sized for a little girl (3T I think), so I got out a pair of Anya's 18 months pants, traced around them leaving about 0.5" outside for the seam allowance, then shaped the pattern so that it looked like a smaller version of the 3T pattern.  And the pattern I was looking at called for the entire thing to be covered by ribbons, but I thought it would be okay to let the fabric peek through at random intervals.  So I really did a lot less work than the pattern called for!

Very clever! I am such a "store-bought pattern" person- making patterns from old clothes is a really new thing for me-you did wonderful work on this
