Fashion prodigy: the dishtowel maxi skirt

Fashion prodigy strikes again!

This week's inspiration comes from a colorful Cost Plus World Market dishtowel. Seeing that no one was using it, Izzy promptly yanked the towel from the kitchen sink and ran upstairs (I always know she's up to something when she skitters up to her room and the house gets all quiet).

A few minutes later she comes downstairs with her ballet leotard on and gives me specific directions. "Mommy, please make this a skirt by wrapping it around my body," Izzy says as she hands me the towel. "Use a rubber band. And make sure there's a slit!"

And there you have it, ladies and gents: the dishtowel maxi skirt. 

p.s. that pose on the right. Ferosh!
