Purple Skirt

Purple triangles skirt

It's really, really fun to make little summer skirts for Lara. This one is from baby clothes printed with various purple patterns. What's amazing is that Lara's waist size is still the same as it was at nine months (or so the labels in her baby clothes would have me believe), so I was able to use the waistband from a pair of little purple pants to attach a bunch of randomly cut and pieces triangles to. Well, I guess not really trianges, but reasonably symmetrical trapezoids with very narrow tops.

Yet another cute skirt that I'm dying to try to find the time to make! I have just recently sorted all of my girls' baby clothes and they are in boxes in my bedroom. I'll have to go through again to find the perfect fabrics (and waistband!) to attempt this skirt.
Thanks for the great idea!
