A new (to me anyway) type of twirly skirt, and the famous peasant top ala vegbee.
I loved following that tutorial! Honestly, I really couldn't tell from looking at it how it all came together into the top, but I just set my laptop next to my computer and did as told, and it worked. What a pleasant surprise. My dd is apparently now the same size more or less as Vegbee's was when the tute was done, which helped because I didn't have to mess with changing the measurements.
Here she is ready to twirl. Unfortunately I made the skirt a bit too short---fine with leggings, bit immodest without---and I don't have enough of the fabric for a do-over.
Here's how the skirt looks flat. I followed the directions in Denhartog and Camp's Sew What! Skirts, and it was, as you might guess from looking at it, very very easy. WAY quicker to do than the tiered twirly skirts, and still pretty darn twirly. And if you used ready-made bias type for the waist band, you'd be done practically before you started.
I think I might play around with this skirt type some more. I wonder how it would look with a ruffle along the edges? Or maybe with two squares layered together...?
Thanks for looking!
