I did it. I got an item of clothing completed for Kids Clothes week!! Hurrah! It's only day 4 so I'm a bit slow but still some time to have a crack at something else too. Details are below (I'm using Meg's summary idea)
The pattern: Tiered skirt from Happy Homemade Kids Volume 2 (Oh how I love that this book is available in English now! Available in these online stores for those interested)
The fabric: Some of my leftover Sea Island Cotton Lawn (from the Tova fail) that I picked up on sale for very cheap.
The sewing: I've come to the realisation that I'm really not a fan of sewing gathers. I don't like fiddle - pin - fiddle - pin - repeat. But all in all it came together for a nice floaty twirly skirt. Didn't take too long. Super quick to cut out.
