A friend of mine came over a couple months ago so I could hem a dress she'd just gotten for herself.  The dress was on sale, but it was like 7 inches too long for her.  When she came over, she brought one of her daughters.  I happened to mention that I wanted to make myself a floor-length broomstick circle skirt once I finish the fundraiser quilt for the church (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=379063.0).  My friend's daughter asked what a broomstick circle skirt was.  When I described it to her, you could see her eyes get big...  She was obviously thinking of how much fun a skirt like that sounded.  Her next comment was something along the lines of "I want one".  I ended up volunteering to make one for her, took her measurements that day, calculated up how much fabric I'd need and told her mom.  When my friend came bringing me the fabric, I had two different sets of fabric - apparently my friend's other daughter wanted one too.   Cheesy   I suppose I should've known that I couldn't make something for one daughter without making something for the other...  Anyway, these skirts are the result of me opening my big mouth.   Roll Eyes  (I blacked the girls' faces out for privacy reasons.)

Thanks for the nice comments, everyone!

Hollie Hobbie - Yes, the girls were rather thrilled with their skirts.   I went to their house for a fitting session, and once they got them on (even without the elastic for the waist), they didn't want to take them off!   Grin
