Poodle Skirt

Our family dressed up 50's style this year.  I picked 50's because I already had a skirt, I didn't have to buy anything for my husband, and a poodle skirt for an 18 month old was be inexpensive.  I didn't have a pattern for the skirt.  I looked at my skirt, decided how long I wanted it, and measured Emme's waist.  My mom sent me the pattern for my poodle skirt from when I was about 7 years old.  I used some of the instructions from that for the waist band.  I also used the pattern for the poodle.  I think the skirt turned out great!  The waist was a little big so I just used a safety pin to make it a little bit smaller.  It took a little while to figure out the pattern, but it was an easy project overall.
