It looks a little like a big yellow Santa bag:
But there is a hole in the middle for legs:
I presented it to Katie Anne and told her it was a puffy skirt, which she immediately called the puppy skirt. She was very excited about wearing the puppy skirt, but...
It is too big. Too big in the waist, and I don't know how. I measured her that morning, and made the elastic waist to fit, but I think the skirt is so heavy that it pulls the waist down. Also, it is too long... maybe because I made it too long, maybe because it doesn't sit high enough on the waist.
It does add some oomph to the skirt, but I don't know that the added volume is worth the trouble of remaking it. If I decide to use it, I'm going to have to shorten it a lot and redo the waistband to make it tighter.
So, for now, we're not using the "puppy" skirt. I'm going to pull out the elastic from the waist and the Poly-Fil from the inside of the skirt and save it for something else later. I'm probably going to just let her go without a puffy layer underneath. Once we add the cape, that will probably be enough oomph.
