My daughter loves this skirt so much that she actually has asked for another one. This time, however, she asked to be a lettuce. Her school has Spirit Week coming up and one of the days is, well, um, Salad Dressing Day. The elementary grades are dressing up as pieces of a salad while the middle school and high school will dress up as salad dressing types (Italian, Ranch, Thousand Island...). I just can't wrap my brain around where that came from, but my daughter said this skirt is perfect because "when I twirl, I'll look like a blooming lettuce!" I do believe we will be going with satin again for the material just because I loved how it draped. I might even add some chiffon to the lettuce one...not really sure yet on that, but I do know that we will have another skirt, it will be green, and it will be twirlarrific!
I really do love this skirt, and I absolutely plan to make one for myself when Jennifer gets around to designing a big kid version of this skirt. And I will twirl in it just like my daughter did in hers. Maybe not as long, though. I did mention me and the teacups, right? Construction was so simple, and it took me maybe an hour to finish each skirt. The unique placement of the petal circles gives this skirt a beautifully different look, and the simplicity of it is what gives it its elegance.
