It is for making the skirt below. I started it in 2009 and then put it aside because my daughter was not really that into such a girly skirt. I'm so glad I kept the wip because now, four years later, she's a girly girl who would wear a skirt like this. I sent her the pic and she said it's nice, so I think it's time to get it completed. But I must finish the lavendar mohair sweater first. Update on the sweater - I"ve finished the front and back and started one sleeve.
There's more to the skirt than meets the eye. It has front pleated panels (the longer piece below) and smaller inserts (smaller triangle piece below) in between the pleats.
