I bought this sparkly organza in a sale at Threads of Green and my daughter (3) has been admiring it for weeks. She wanted a ballet skirt like Angelina Ballerina - but really as long as it was pink and shiny she wouldn't mind.
Once I got the Sewing Clothes Kids Love book I decided on the Insa Skirt, but added two more layers of satin and net to give it a lift. I was really pleased with how it turned out - it looks just like candy floss it is so pink and fluffy and sparkly.
I added trim on top of each seam on the overskirt and underskirt - mostly to cover the seams so they can't be seen
My daughter was delighted - she just looked at it , asked where the 'top' was, and then tried it on to show to her Dad and brothers.
