The perfect skirt pattern for your twirlers, jumpers, and monkey-bar hangers! I'll teach you to sew this super twirly skirt with bloomer bottoms built right in to keep her covered (and compliant with schools whose rules require shorts beneath a skirt!) This pattern is even better than a skort or scooter because the gathered bloomer-style legs prevent leg-hole peeks too. Leave out the bloomers (I'll show you how) and you have a lovely twirl skirt that sews up quickly.
Sewing for your loved ones is so satisfying! You get to choose your own fabrics and are not at the mercy of clothing manufacturers for style and print. Sew up a skirt for every holiday, and for matching siblings, relatives and friends! Twirl skirt make very popular gifts among little girls too.
Despite the professional look, this is an EASY level pattern you'll be sewing for all the little girls you know for all occasions. We take it step-by-step and you never have to guess where to sew because every stitching line is clearly marked on the photos. I'm also available for help along the way if you need it. They want to twirl, so let's get sewing!

I'm Jen Hagedorn, the designer behind Tie Dye Diva sewing patterns. My line of downloadable sewing patterns focuses on easy-to-sew and easy-to wear classic clothing designs for baby and child, with just a touch of whimsy like animal ears on fleece hats and ruffled bottoms on baby wear. I aim to make sewing a gratifying and educational process that gives you a result you're proud of.
