Houndstooth skirt for fall

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.

 It turned out pretty cute.  The fabric is really thick and I don't like the way it bunches in the back, but that's mainly due to the fact that I made it a little big so that she could grow into it.
