I'm Back, With Another Twirl Skirt

Well, I figure I have taken a long enough break from posting on this blog! I wanted to enjoy the holidays without stress or distractions, so the blog was the first to go. I am happy to report that our holidays were great! It appears to have taken the full month of January for me to recover.

Anyway, I made another Twirl Skirt for my daughter, using these adorable matching fabrics I found at Hobby Lobby! I just fell in love with the colors and patterns. This time I decided that she needed a shirt to match, since the busyness of the skirt might look funny with just a plain shirt for the top. I gathered a strip of the fabric I used for the bottom stripe to make a little tuxedo top to match. I gathered two strips of black lace for underneath the fabric, then I sewed them all onto the shirt. I added three black buttons as well. I am happy with how it turned out, even though it's far from perfect. I highly recommend tear-away stabilizer for sewing onto t-shirts!

If you haven't made an Edith Twirl Skirt, I recommend you do! They are so fun.
