Do you pick fabric with a specific project in mind or does fabric call your name although you have no idea what you're going to make with it? I think I fit both descriptions at times, which probably leads me to have way more fabric than one person needs :) This skirt was definitely inspired by the fabric. I was browsing through JoAnn's one day and boy did it ever call my name! So girly! So covered in pre-sewn ric rac and ribbon! I was in love!
I saw a fun tutorial for a twirly skirt at All About Mommies and I followed her basic tutorial for the main skirt. You can find that tutorial here. I had to adjust the dimensions a bit to fit my girlies, but the basic tute will yield one cute skirt! The fabric I had was a bit sheer, though, so I wanted to line it. What goes better with a super girly fabric than some beautiful eyelet lace? I bought some eyelet trim and stitched it to some plain white broadcloth. I then stitched the lining to the main skirt piece, flipped it inside out, and there ya go! One fluffy, girly, twirly skirt! Or two, in my case :)
My petite princesses love them and so do I! Now go make a twirly skirt for your cutie pie!
