Every year Katya’s school–she goes to summer school, because it’s *awesome*–lots of splash pools, special guests, and music therapy– has a 4th of July parade, where they play music and march around the block. The families can then come and have a picnic. Such a festive occasion requires a festive skirt, so I got a head start. Pinwheels were a natural choice, because Katya is fond of pinwheels.
This skirts special feature– a silky ruffle around the hem, snipped from the sleeves of a silky grey shirt.
It’s got an up-cycled underskirt–not pictured–made from the body of the same silky grey shirt as the ruffle. Katya looked super cute in it.
