Project Run and Play Week 1: Circle Skirt Remix

Circle Squared:

When the theme was announced I immediately thought of remixing the pattern to be a square skirt.
Not being a fan of dresses and skirts that have a bunch of points hanging down I decided to put my square layers over a circle.  This stays true to the "circle skirt" while adding more geometry  and interest.
So I used three different colors of the same or similar prints.  I added a top made from the pink print and monogrammed it by embroidering her first initial on the front. Knowing that she'll want to wear it to school, and remembering that some sort of sleeve is required by the dress code, I took the blue circle that was a result of my cutting the waist and halved it to make the flared capped sleeve.
