Hello! More new twirly skirts to show you!
The pattern is free, courtesy of Made by Dana. One good thing about this pattern is you can also make one for yourself! There is an adult version and I 'm excited to make one for myself. These skirts go together fast because they are so simple -- one piece of fabric with no seams, a wide elastic waistband, and a hem. Fast and easy.
Do you see the brown skirt above? Mama asked me to make a pair of brown skirts because these girls wear their skirts every day, doing everyday girl stuff like riding bikes and playing in the garden dirt with shovels and buckets. So brown skirts were a must! For now, the girls wear their skirts with jeans or leggings since it's too chilly for bare legs.
Even our newest baby grandgirl got a couple twirly skirts! The baby version of the circle skirt takes a fat quarter, a 14-15" chunk of 1inch elastic, and a hem. I did a bias tape edge on this skirt, and I like how it finishes the edge and helps the skirt hold it's flair. The baby circle skirt tutorial is also from Made by Dana HERE! Don't you just love the crocheted baby blanket? Mama made it! She's become a very good, self-taught crocheter.
If you'd like a quick and easy project for a little girl (or big girl), this is it! It would make a fun gift too.
