I have just finished a new dress for Peekaboo...It is a variation on the reversible dress I made her last year (which she is still wearing!) This has the same bodice, with little gold buttons. The difference is that the skirt is made up of 80-ish 4" squares! Yup! I didn't think this through very well before starting! That is A LOT of cutting! I bought 5 'fat squares' at Len's Mill and started cutting. There are 4 rows of squares, each one 1 1/2 x bigger than the row before. That means that I also had to gather each row before sewing it!! It was a lot of work, but well worth it-she loves it! Because of the amount of fabric, when she twirls it goes straight out! I will have to make matching panties for the next one!! (Next one?!?! Am I mad!?!?!)
