More Can-Can Goodness

I'm really getting the hang of this skirt. I love it! Rubes was invited to two more birthday parties recently and since both children are girls the following were made. (Rubes has quite the social calender.)
Lindsay's Can-Can Skirt
Blue for her blonde, blue-eyed friend.

And purple for the other. Rubes was very specific on this color choice.
Stephanie's Can-Can Skirt
I've altered the pattern by adding an elastic waist band to both the skirts. Takes the pressure off guessing the correct size and allows for growth spurts.

The only down-side so far is the need to hand wash. Nylon chiffon tends to wonk out and shrink if thrown in the washer. (Frills need a little extra care.)

I'm in the process of making some spring/summer skirts with the basic skirt pattern but tweaking the ruffles/fabric. Should be fun.
