Twirly Skirty girl

I've been meaning to make Myla a little skirt for awhile. Long ago I bought this cute patchwork fabric from Hobby Lobby with a skirt in mind. I found this great twirly skirt tutorial and knew it'd be quick and easy (my favorite). The other day I saw this great rosette tank tutorial from Grace Violet (my new blog crush) and thought it'd be a perfect pairing. I love the results. And best of all, it only took one sewing night to do it...maybe 2 hours at the most.

Myla pretending to be shy when we all know the truth. :)
The little rosette. I think I might add another one, just for the fun of it.
The skirt. It's a little long on her, but with the way this girl is sprouting it'll be too short next week. :) Okay, maybe next month.

Putting the twirly skirt to the test.

I'm not kidding you Christie, that skirt and tank combo is just too cute. One of the cutest outfits I have seen in a long time! And Myla wears it so well! I love how it all turned out.

Um,...when will you be opening up your own designer store? And making fabric...seriously, your taste is impeccable.

look at that cute tums... of course the skirt is cute - just not nearly as cute as the girl.

I have been looking for a skirt pattern (how to) to make my 6 year old granddaughter a skirt. Thanks so much. I'm following your blog. Linda
