JR ACU skirt

Is she just so adorable. Or what?
   I made an ACU skirt for myself a few weeks back.  Well I had two pieces left over.  My daughter wanted a skirt, so I used the cut off legs and made her one too.
 She loves to pose. 
 The cut off legs have knee pockets for knee pads which make great pockets.
  I used the drawstring bottom to make the elastic waist band.  I just attached the elastic to the draw string and pulled it through.  Wow that was the easies waist band ever.  OK so I cheated.  I was just being resourceful.  The side pockets were upside down so I unpicked and then put them back on rightside up.  She loves it and it was the easiest skirt I ever made.  Now we match and she loves that too.
