Last week I posted about how I made a skirt for Madelynn. Well, she initially loved it because of the colors, but was disappointed when she put it on and immediately tested its twirlability. It was not a good spinning skirt. So, to please my little darling I decided to make this skirt last night. Both of these patterns are really well written and easy to follow, though the latter one is slightly above my skill level. It was definitely a challenge, but I was quite pleased with the end result, and Madee is currently enjoying this skirt's twirlability. I was really on a roll last night at the sewing machine and also decided to try my hand at sewing a narrow ribbon along the bottom edge of the first skirt. Like I said before, my skills can use some fine tuning, but I am really enjoying the practice.

  3. My daughter tries out dresses and skirts for "twirl-ability" too! Very important priority!
