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.
