Twirly Skirt

Well I saw that a lady was making her daughter twirl skirts...and I just had it in my mind I wanted to try.

So little miss and I went to the fabric store, picked out two matching fabrics. She picked out the fabrics (she fell in love with the nativity on it). Of the main one for the skirt, I got 2 yards (totally only need one yard though) and then of the other, I got 10 inches.

I do not have nor did I use a pattern. The only problem with it is that I made the elastic around the waist.... too big - so I need to undo it a little to tighten the elastic up for her...and viola...

I spent about 1 1/2 hours and I loved making it!! I have a sneeky suspicion that I'll be making more of these - how fun for the seasons, right? (my model didn't want to totally change out of her clothes to yes, she's wearing pants underneath, but that's ok too) :)

oh, and it does twirl out very nicely too!
