Last Christmas I made Violet a cute little pleated skirt. Unfortunately she grew out of it before it was even washed. So, I tried again with a new fabric. I gave Violet a choice between brown and pink plaid and houndstooth. I thought she would go for the more colorful one but when she saw this one, she literally gasped and yelled, "Blackwhite stars!"
It was pretty simple-- a pleat in the front, pleat in the back, a waistband, and some elastic. I lined it so that it wouldn't be so itchy.
