Every Girly Needs a Twirly

August 29, 2011 · 2 comments

Twirly enabled skirts are the whole reason for wearing a dress…at least it is for a five year old! I made this for my precious ChicaBean to wear on her first day back to school.

I used Amy Butler Soul Blossoms fabric… “Buttercups” in Honeydew for the bodice and parts of the sash and “Disco Flower” in Tangerine for the skirt. The remainder of the stash is made from my …uh…stash. Ha! I crack me up.

I slightly modified a pattern from the book Girls World.

I love sewing books with patterns…much cheaper than purchasing patterns from the BIG THREE. I highly recommend the book by Jennifer Paganelli of Sis Boom.
