I saw a pettiskirt that KatMiller did the other day and it inspired me to try to make one for my little girl.

So here is the end result:

My goodness, that's precious!  I think that a top might just distract from all the frilly glory and the adorable face.

OH, how perfect!!!  And I like the skirt too.  Must try one of these.

It looks like you used something other than chiffon...?  Is it tulle?

I can't be sure what the fabric was exactly I am sorry (but it is definately not chiffon).  I found it in the dance material section (it is like a really soft netting, really easy to cut and sew with too).  I don't recommend getting material with the pre glued sparkles on it though (like I did) as the glue from the sparkles kept building up on the machines needle and then the cotton would stick to it and snap (very frustrating having to re thread the machine 20 times for one skirt).

So cute! It makes a diapered-butt look extra cute! ( I know a lady who put two diapers on her baby once just for extra waddle) I love the no-shirt- full skirt combo! She's adorable!

Absolutely adorable.   I saw this on the Martha program - weird I hadn't see her for awhile, and LOVED it.  Found some fabric at a garage sale in purple, and had some pink netting, and will be making it for my 6 yo and 1 yo granddaughters.   The 6 yo loves to dress up, so she'll love it.

Great job...thanks for the reminder on my long to do list.
