A Twirly Skirt

I promised a friend’s daughter a trip to the fabric store and a handmade skirt for her birthday. Never mind the fact that her birthday was back in June. Talitha waited ever so patiently and I was finally able to deliver the skirt yesterday when Seth had his piano lesson (Talitha’s mom is my friend and Seth’s teacher). I had no trouble convincing her to go ahead and try it on so we could make sure it really twirls (it does.) You can find the tutorial for this skirt at House on Hill Road. It is clear and easy to follow. I guess I better make one for Larkspur now.


  1. Oh! My little granddaughter, Ava would love that skirt. She is the one that reminds me of Larkspur. She'd twirl until she fell down and then start all over again once she regained her balance. Too bad I don't sew. I'm sending her Mom over to the web page for directions, thanks for including them.

  2. Lovely fabric and the skirt looks great. I have a friend who is still waiting for her birthday present since beginning of May.

  3. What a wonderful gift! She picked a fun fabric and you did a lovely job.I love that name Talitha.

  4. Adorable skirt! Didn't know you had that in the wings. You probably haven't even started the second legwarmer. You only have so much time in a day and you absolutely amaze me at all the things you accomplish. Especially with six kids! I don't know how you do it. But back to the skirt, it twirls beautifully and the material looks "happy." Like it's thrilled to be a skirt, if that makes sense. If not, oh well… Time for me to get busy. I love your blog so much. You always manage to get to much done in a day, I don't know how you do it.

  5. Adorable! I wish I was so crafty.

  6. Beautiful! How long have you been sewing? You never cease to amaze me!

    I love it!

I love to hear from you!
