I've seen lots of versions of this dress on here and they are just so lovely, I really love pixie skirts. Great idea to put the 2 together, your dress is lovely Smiley

Thanks.  Grin

I love your take on the dress - another classic.  I did the two squares thing for my daughter (it's way back on page 83 of the quickie dress topic) but I didn't know this was also called a "pixie" skirt.  If anyone is totally maths challenged, I had a cheat which was to get my daughter's waist measurement and then search the kitchen cupboards for anything round (we ended up using a smallish dinner plate) which had the same circumference.  Then I just used the plate to move around on the fabric plotting where the waist should be cut.  I don't have a plate big enough for me  Roll Eyes but I think I have a stockpot that might work  Wink.

I love the fabric you used.

I love the fabric you used for your daughters. I was thinking of making one for my neice but wasn't too sure how well it would work with an 9 year old. But I just might give it a try after seeing how well yours turned out. My neice has to have everything like me Cheesy , but I am all out of the fabric I used for this dress. I will have to look around for something similar.
