I brought J with me to the fabric shop last weekend and she pointed at lots of rolls of fabric, saying "MINE! MINE! MINE!". My intention was originally only to get some table cloth, but in the end I bought three of the fabrics she "liked". At least that should increase the likelihood of her wearing the stuff, right?
One of the fabric she selected had lots of colourful Russian dolls on white background.
So, here is the babushka skirt!
I still need to figure out what she'll wear under the skirt, as she is still in a nappy / diaper, but I guess I'll end up making some bloomers next...
