I really liked this pattern. For some reason it came out a few inches longer than I expected given the pattern's estimated lengths so I had to go back and make a few adjustments. It was easy to follow and had great pictures. Thank you.

I have made this skirt countless times. Each time I love it more! My girls love them and love the "twirlability" that the skirt has!

The Bella Skirt Pattern is one of the best twirl skirt patterns on the site. I love it and my daughter loves the skirts. This one is perennial favorite and perfect for all seasons.

What an adorable twirl skirt! This was easy to stitch up and the instructions and photos were great. The sizing was a little off, the size 1 looked more like a 2T, it turned out very large. My little girl will be able to wear it next year. :o)

I love this pattern! I had so much fun making it that I immediately went out and purchased enough fabric for two more skirts! Very easy to follow and great attention to detail. I've never done ruffling before but it was a breeze when following this pattern.

I LOVE this pattern!!! I am a beginner when it comes to sewing and my mom came over to help with the first skirt-took us about 4-5 hours to complete-the instructions were great and I sewed a second skirt by myself the very next day (in about 3 1/2 hours). My twin daughters love their skirt and I can't wait to see them in it!

This skirt is so easy to make and turns out so stinking cute! I made one last year for Christmas and am working on one right now for Halloween. I don't know why I don't make more!

I love the bella skirt because it allows me to use different fabrics that are noticeable when worn. you can see the contract easily without being bulky and heavy. But there are still lots of twirling power! Wendy was sweet and answered my questions promptly.

I did enjoy making this skirt and it turned out beautifully. It was fun to choose the fabrics and see it come all together. I would agree though that it is an intermediate project. I would not have been able to make it as my first sewing project. But it is fun and I will be making more. This is not a whip it out in one night type of skirt for my level (I would say I am lower intermediate level) but again, it was fun and looks great.

As a beginning sewer I was amazed at how easily I was able to complete this skirt. I made a skirt for each of my daughters and loved how they turned out. This is the first thing I've ever sewn and they turned out fantastic! The instructions are very exact and complete leaving no steps out. Thanks for such a cute skirt!

I really loved this pattern. It was really easy to follow, and had lots of pictures to help you follow along. I got so many comments on this twirl skirt over the holiday's. I'm sure I'll be making more soon.
