Twirly Ruffled Skirts

how could i resist? when i saw these on Heather Bailey's website, i could not HELP myself. i had to make them. the weather still isn't great for a good outdoor photo shoot, so these are the best i could do from our little family party tonight! hopefully you get the idea! i used SEVERAL different patterns/tutorials to create these.

the twirly skirt tutorial by House on Hill Road, and the skirt tutorial by The Polka Dot Chair.


it took ALOT of brain power because i was making a 4T into a 12-18 month and 2T. Once i had the measurements down on paper, it was a lot less thinking and a lot more sewing!

i used wonder under to iron on the appliques to a shirt from target, then stiched around the edges... super easey! if anyone is interested i will use more brain power to make a BASIC tute to help you make your own...
