A twirly skirt

I made this beautiful skirt for Louisa. The photos simply do not do it justice.

I knew as soon as I found this fabric that I wanted to make a twirly skirt, but where to find a pattern? Andrea from our EB sewing thread gave us this link. Suddenly twirly skirts were everywhere: here, here , here, here and here- and I'm sure I've seen other great examples. It did take me awhile to finally finish it, but now I have and realise how quick they are, I'm determined to make two more before the weekend's round of birthday parties!

That's gorgeous Suz, I love the contrast you chose, it really sets off the colours in the red.
Very sweet.

That's so cute! Did you find it REALLY gathered and big around the waist? I've been thinking how I can combat that...
