My 6 year old daughter LOVES skirts. She has worn them about 98% of the time since she was 2 and informed me that "princesses do NOT wear jeans", accompanied by that face that means, "what kind of moron parent are you?". Princesses are experts at this face, even 2 year old princesses.
This shirt came to me through freecycle - if you don't know about freecycle, check it out at www.freecycle.org
. The shirt's not my size or style, and was two seconds from the outgoing freecycle pile. But the princess loved the glitter & bling and claimed the shirt. However, she's a girl's size 6, not a women's 18/20, so the shirt needed some adjustment.
This idea would work for an adult sized skirt also, just get a shirt that fits over your hips. Or make panels from a couple of different shirts....
