Since I learned how to use the serger, sewing twirl skirts has become a cinch! It takes way more time to cut out the pieces than it does to actually get the skirt sewn together. We are hoping to soon be able to offer you similar skirts in our Etsy shop.
The first one is from some fun puppy princess fabric I picked up at Joanns. I made it in Little Monkette’s size but she already has so many skirts. This one will likely go into the shop once we are able to sell them. I might have Little Monkette model it for some pictures though! I used the same fabric for all the panels as well as for the waistband.
This twirl skirt was made for one of Amy’s friends. She gave me an old Tenth Avenue North t-shirt she had and asked me to make one. I kept putting it off for a while, trying to perfect the skirts a bit better. Now that I am using the serger, they are MUCH better than before. I was loving how this skirt was turning out, but then as I was attaching the waistband, something bad happened. A piece of the front panel of the skirt got stuck up into the serger and got cut! AHHHHH!!!! NO!!!!!! I was finally able to find a small fix. I’m not totally happy with it but it is still cute. I hope the recipient of the skirt loves her new twirl skirt!
