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.
