made this for a little girl turning 5...  sequined organza with habutai lining and puffy petticoat, and a simple-in-theory elastic waistband that gave me grief.  the organza was crap to work with--never again!

modeled by my ever-gracious sofa, with cat for scale.

lovely crinoline with crisp rolled hem.  sorry for the terrible lighting.

better view of the sequins.  again with the gloom, sorry.

i also made a simple little doll with a matching skirt, posted here:
Do you need a cute purse to go with that outfit?

This is so sweet.  The recepient is going to be one happy little girl.  I know what you mean about the organza being hard to work with but the end results are so great.

I'm interested in personal swaps -- I love bracelets & necklaces and I don't know how to make them.

Very pretty. I just got something similar for my little girl for Christmas.

It's not what you know, but what you do with what you know that is important.

That's gorgeous!  I have two little girls of my own, and would LOVE IT, so I'm sure your little recipient will adore it!

And your kitty is cute too.  Grin
