On Sunday Bianca and Mel had a sew along via twitter making Twirly skirts using this tutorial.
If you visit their blogs you are sure to see more little girls twirling.
I had to work on Sunday so couldn't sew along but did make Miss5 a skirt yesterday. I deviated for the tutorial slightly but followed most of it. I made mine with French seams, added the lace work insert ( not sure of its correct name ) and a bit of extra fabric for more 'twirlability'.
This was an unplanned addition but I really think it adds to the cute factor and the very happy skirt owner loves the flowers.
Miss is currently wearing new skirt over her tracksuit pants as she does not want to take it off and I am frequently showered with thanks, exclamations of 'I LOVE my new twirly skirt' and cuddles.
I am thinking I need to make some little shorts for underneath as the twirling, dancing and general new skirt love get's a bit revealing.
I predict more twirly skirts in our future.
Looks great Tammy. How good is it when you make something and they LOVE it. The t'shirt your Miss 5 is wearing is one of Indi's favourites for obvious reasons.ReplyDelete

My mum used to make me skirts and dresses when I was little too! I'd forgotten just how cute they were.
Thanks for popping in and saying hello and your kind comments. I'm very interested in your 5 minute a day bread, I love fresh bread. I'll try and pick up a copy of that book and have a browse in Borders at the weekend, they also have a nice blog too.
I love the lace trim and the skirt is beautiful.ReplyDelete
