the skirt looks absolutely beautiful - that must have been a big afghan though, if you still have so much left over. I love to crochet, but the thought of making such a labor-intensive (read: time-consuming) project makes me kinda shudder. That's lovely you can benefit from someone else's frustration, hehe.

Great idea to break this down, and use it for clothing.

The pieces you've made are gorgeous, but I do have one question. I wonder if the skirt would look better with a different color lining?

Gorgeous though! Smiley

there is no lining on the skirt that is just the slip I picked for the day.  I don't like to line skirts that way I have the option of color change.  I wanted graphic patterns that day.  If I want just soft color I would have picked a pink, white, or ecru slip.

Beautiful skirt.  I also love the kids' tops.  I admire people who have the gift of seeing the potential of cast-off items.  Excellent!
