I had the privilege of creating this skirt for Heather Bailey's article in the April/May 2008 issue of Mary Engelbreit's Home Companion magazine. This skirt has the best of everything! It's fun and twirly while being luxurious and lady-like at the same time.

This pattern is for sizes 2-6 (but can easily be accommodated for taller children). The finished length is 12 inches for a 2 year old up to 16 inches for a 6 year old. It requires slightly over around 1 yard of fabric for the largest size (depending on the version you choose) and just over 1 yard of lining fabric as well. The smaller sizes require less. You may also wish to have 4 colors of embroidery floss if you choose to embroider the ruffle (pattern and instructions included).

This ebook includes 25 pages of instructions with 45 color pictures and detailed drawings.

*Note: These are downloadable instructions for making a twirl skirt. Pattern pieces are not included. Chart is included with cutting measurements. Since it is a download, you will receive this by email and it will also be located in the "My Library" section of your user account immediately after purchase.

I LOVE this pattern. I've been making these skirts for about 4 years now and they are all so very cute.

This pattern makes the most adorable skirts ever! Lots of twirl and fullness in this skirt. Easy to follow instructions make sure you use heavy duty elastic though, it ends up being a bit heavy with the weight of the fabric. Beautiful skirt all around!

I have made this skirt dozens of times!! I cannot use it often enough!!! There isn't a twirl skirt out there better designed. The skirt ALWAYS looks professionally sewn, and looks great no matter what material you use!! It is a must buy!

This is a great pattern. I have used it now 3 times and love love love it! It's easy to make and you really can do so much with it. Patten is well writen and I had no problems with it at all. I have made it with the skirt underneath and without super cute both ways. Thanks so much for a great pattern!

I love this skirt pattern! The bulk of the fabric is not around their little waist, and it is a true twirl skirt. You can make it look different everytime you make it to suit the little ones personality. Plus and this is a big plus the creator is email accesable, I wrote to her and asked a question and she got back to me right away. Instructions are easy and clear to follow. Well written Thanks so much!

I have been sewing for a very long time and right now I sew for a charity that makes Easter outfits for underprivileged children. This pattern has breathed new life in my sewing. It is a fabric lovers dream. I can see worlds of possibilities when I look at fabric now. It is so much fun to make and each one has a definite look all of its own. I can just imagine the little girl that receives the skirt loving the twirl. I have experimented with different tops to go with it. Right now am making knit tops with machine embroidery and a few little be-dazzlers . My favorite pattern!
