I found the most funky skirt in a bag of old clothes given to me by a freecycler last year. It wasn't going to fit my Squidge until she's at least 9 to I took it apart and used the ultra fab material.
this is all sewn by hand as I didn't have a sewing machine at the time, and I added little details.

thanks to my messing up the back and adding elastic rather than taking it in, it still fits her!!

heres the dress


my princess running in it


the embroidery I did over the pattern on the pocket


and finally, it was all too much like hard work so she decided to have a rest.


I was so proud of this, it was the first time I'd ever made anything and it turned out not looking like a 4 year old had seen it!!!

Definitely not a 4yo's project Wink! You did an awesome job on this recon. I think that fabric is pretty groovy Grin!
