Everytime I say that I am going to make a Vegbee twirler, for tute click on this -> http://indietutes.blogspot.com/2007/05/patchwork-circle-skirt.html,I end up quiting after the third tier. This time I made it all the way to the last tier. Hooray!!!There are 5 total. My pumpkin calls it her round and around dress. That might be because I tell her to spin "around" when ever she wears it.
And so, here's the dress




Please excuse the crazy socks


and an action shot, sorry the pics a bit blurry


So what do you think?
Well, thanx for looking!

Very cute!  I do lots of patchwork twirls and although even I get at my wits end they don't have to be as nerve-wrecking as they are.

A few sanity saving tips.

1) Cut your squares wider/longer, in fact make em rectangles so theres less to sew together.  Take a 4 inch square and make it 6 or even 8.  They will be reduced anyway onced they are gathered.I do mines 10 or 12 because I do my layers double the previous one so 12 inch rect. will be 6 inches after gathered. 

2) ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS start at the bottom, gathering the longest layer then work your way UP!!!
It is soooo much easier to attach one flat piece to one gathered piece and not 2 gathered pieces.

I found this tidbit early on in my sewing and has really made doing them more bearable!!

It's not what you know, but what you do with what you know that is important.
