All pretty...unsure of it
I am sailing off into unchartered waters with this little skirt. On the outside it looks great, I am super happy with that gorgeous purple fabric...but I am giving this skirt as a gift and I am really, really uncertain about its fit and ease of wearability. I have a deep down gut feeling that its all wrong.
I made it following an internet tutorial and downsized it to smaller dimensions. I was happy with my downsizing calculations but when I actually made it I realised that it was probably going to be too minimal around the waist and subsequently be restrictive around the wearer's legs as its essentially a straight up and down tubular construction through the skirt with the ruffles sewn into it. If you check out the tutorial and you will see what I mean.
I have sat and stared at this itty-bitty skirt and considered picking it apart and re-modelling it, but I'm not sure I can made any really serious improvements for the time and effort it would take.
I am going to pop it in a gift bag on a wing and a prayer, and with my fingers crossed. Maybe two year olds are smaller than what I can remember...
