embroidered skirt that didnt turn out as i expected

This is a simple little skirt that I made for my niece.  But unfortunately it didn't turn out as I expected it would, so it has happily found a new home.

a couple of embroidered flowers that are stitched onto felt then sewn on.

A ruffled hem, with 20 denier nylon under the skirt to give it a girly feel.

The lady 4yo of the house happily picked it up and would not take it off, a good sign that she likes it!

And really if it fits my 4yo I don't think its going to fit my 2yo niece who my husband describes as a pocket rocket!

Love it Carolyn. Such a happy skirt.

I'm with Tas, that is such a happy skirt.
My girls are obsessed with skirts that have 'bits of tutu hanging out', they are always asking me to make them for them.
I hope you have a great and happy week Carolyn.

*smiles* it's a very cute skirt. I'm happy that your 4 yr old picked it up. When I first seen it, I couldn't figure out what in the world was wrong with it, I wish my appliques came out so nice.

how can you not smile looking at the skirt, your 4 year old has the right idea!

It definitely looks like it belongs on her!
I finally used some of the lovely fabric you gave me in a swap ages ago, have a look on my blog.
