Every little girl needs a twirl skirt and with the range of novelty quilters fabric now readily available you'll want to make this again and again. My version has an elasticated back and flattering flat front.
This is a good beginner to intermediate sewer project - its all straight line sewing, and introduces gathering and possibly a different way of putting on a waistband (which looks really neat and professional on the inside as well as outside); and a really great way of finishing off a hem.

Tutorial includes step by step photos in full colour.
My hands love silk, wool, cotton, linen, paper, leather, wood.
Currently on hiatus from selling my craft, I'm taking a year or two to make for myself and my loved ones.
