IDEA: I saw a similar skirt at http://fnurr.blogspot.com/ that I thought was absolutely gorgeous and that didn't look too difficult to make.
FABRIC: The first skirt was made from a small piece of vintage fabric I bought off eBay for 99 cents, and the other one was made from an adult vintage skirt that I unpicked, cut and sew together.
MAKING: It was very easy to make; just cut out the pieces and sew together. I put bias binding around the bottom of the skirt, and a long piece of ribbing at the waist. This can be folded in half, like the waist on yoga pants, or worn over the tummy. (If I have another baby at some stage, I'll make one of these for myself to wear duriing pregnancy!!!)
I think both skirts look good, and what's better is that my daughter loves them!!! She calls them "The banarina pretty" (Ballerina pretty) and wears them all the time...
