While I haven't posted in a long time, I have been sewing up a storm. At Christmas I was reminded of a twirly skirt my aunt made me when I was a kid. Really simple skirt with an elastic waistband, it was my favorite thing to wear. I thought I would give it a try for my daughter and nieces and really love them! I used http://whatthecraft.com/circle-skirt-variations-tutorials-pixie-skirt-and-more/ to make these and plan on making tons more! I took a lot of pictures so beware! Hehe.
I decided a little last minute to make matching shirts as well and I really like how they turned out.

I only had enough black fabric to make 1 two layered skirt. I got a little lazy and made the black a rectangle instead. It does hang a little funny on her but it twirly really big.

Proof of twirly-ness! Not the best picture, I know, but the good one showed her underwear. We will HAVE to wear shorts underneath.

Very cute. Smiley

I remember this was one of my very first sewing projects (when I was about ten). I hand sewed it and had to use a bedsheet that was torn so it wasn't really something I could wear in public because the bedsheet was a striped yucky one that looked like a worn out bedsheet. But it was the first thing that actually turned out! lol

Thanks! I felt a nice sense of nostalgia making these.
