WIP Wednesday - Week 31 - Twirly Skirt Twirling!

I finished Grace's new twirly skirt. I'm really happy with how it falls and as you can see from the shots below, so is Grace! I was a bit worried that the waist was too bulky as I adapted the instuctions, didn't go for a drawstring ribbon, just an elastic casing. Maybe the smaller width elastic next time instead of the 1 inch like here. I'd like to make some more, not enough sewing hours in the day at the moment. I have a few secret squirrel quilting projects on the go that I am working on slowly.....

Love it. I think the fabric is just perfect for the skirt too.

Helen, looks great. Love the fabric

Love the fabric choice. I actually think my version was more bulky at the top, so maybe stick with what you are doing :)

Gorgeous model too!

WOW Helen, it looks fabulous! I just asked about it in the sewing group, should have checked bloglines sooner!

Georgeous Helen, the skirt and the model!! I love the smile on Grace's face too, she seems happy with her new skirt.

Wonderful twirly skirt! Every little girls dream come true :-D
Thanks again for the doll quilt. I am so happy, I can't even begin to describe it!! I will post a picture when I have decided where to hang it. For now I just keep it with me every evening, looking at it and showing it to Charles (the poor man) every 2 minutes!

adorable shot and skirt(and daughter!). i would think the thicker 1" would be less inclined to twist tho...

LOVE the skirt and clearly so does grace! Is the pattern your own (meaning, can you share it??)
