If I ever get around to knitting an adult-sized version of that, I'm *so* rocking it with my red Converse, too.  Smiley  Great job!

So pretty and comfy looking.  You've got a lucky daughter.

This looks great.  Good idea to make in longer.  Now she can wear it for a longer time.

That is adorable! (though, I fear, something I think looks so so so much better on her than a grown-up one would look on me).

It looks like a perfect first day of school outfit (not that I was the sort of kid that planned them out pretty much as soon as I got out of school in June).

I love that pattern. Was it hard? The yarn colors are so great together, your kids are adorable and I want to live where ever you are! The background looks so beautiful! Lots of trees and flowers!

isearchtobelost, on the knitty website the pattern is adapted for many sizes, and i think the skirt would be flattering on all figures. (most of us are more curvaceous than my 6-year-old!)
yumichan, i really thought the pattern was very clear and easy to follow. not really any difficult steps. it looks intimidating because there is a chart, but when you look it over, you see that the chart is simple to follow. there is a knitalong in the knitalong section where people would answer questions.
and yes, it's beautiful here most of the year, if you like the heat. judging by your avatar, you live somewhere chilly? also my husband is addicted to gardening like i am addicting to knitting!

...the whole world is a narrow bridge, and the main thing is to have no fear at all...

Great job!  The skirt is gorgeous and so are your kids.  I really want to make this skirt so I'm trying to find a suitable girl (as I don't have one) or convince myself that it wouldn't look silly on an adult  Grin
