I hate it when I do things like that. I have a pair of pants hanging in my project room as a reminder from a similar error I made. I made cotton pants from a pattern drafted from some  super stretchy knit pants. They are tiny, like pencil leg doll pants!

 Maybe if you added some slits on the sides? Sort of like for beach dresses. That would open the skirt up a bit and she could move better.

May our efforts reflect our values.
May the variety in life bring us joy.
May we seek to inspire not compete.
May we have happy hearts.

To keep the skirt, but add twirl, maybe add panels of fabric inside? http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=182570.msg1900573#msg1900573

What about if you sewed it in as an apron and use the red to make an underskirt?  The colors/patterns seem to go together so well...

thanks folks for the suggestions!  I've put the fiasco aside for awhile (dd is actually wearing it, so as long as I don't have to fess up that I actually made it, I'm okay with it).  Very soon though, after I make the baby his 3 pairs of pants to go with the tops I made, and then a skirt and a top for me and another scoodie (I'm pathological), and then a tunic and wrap pants for a friend and patch the man's jeans (that he's been bugging me to do forever) and some leggings for the dd (spring is coming... time to put away the snowpants in month or two) I'm going to seriously think about what to do with it.   Grin
