Have you ever been inspired to dress your child like a court jester? Really, the jester affect wasn't a part of my inspiration, but I let the nerdlet choose the colors. I was inspired by a quilt top (not really a giant dahlia) whose pieces are sitting by my sewing machine currently and decided to try to make the nerdlet a skirt before the idea passed through my head never to be seen again. I really should just start a notebook for these sorts of ideas.
This is the skirt, but it's currently in the sewing process. I really think it would be quite lovely if the colors weren't so contrasting. All three of the girls have been really excited about it, and I've had to reweave it a number of times today, as every time I move away from it they start playing with it.
I did take pictures of my process so far, though you probably can figure it out.
