“These skirts are so much fun to make! My significant other enjoys the "puzzle" of putting the patches in order and I think that is one reason I love this pattern so much. It is rare that he gets so very involved in my sewing projects! The pattern is easy to follow and the many embellishment options are fantastic.”

Size 2T - Size 8
Doll sizes: 15"-18"

Now your little girl AND her dolly can match in their twirl skirts! This eBook contains the instructions and patterns to make a fun, perky, patchwork twirl skirt. And you'll love that it goes up to a size 8!

Designed for maximum "twirlability" with a minimum input of materials (less than 2 yards of fabric!) and effort. Time-saving tips and nots on fabric selection and finishing are included. Instructions for adding trims and ruffles, such as inset and Euro ruffles are all there, too.

In addition, this volume contains the instructions to make a doll-sized twirl skirt! After cutting out the pieces of the "big girl twirl", there will be just enough fabric remaining to make Dolly her own matching twirl! The skirt will fit a range of sizes from 15" baby dolls like Bitty Baby, to 18" play dolls like American Girl.

Sizes for "Big Girl": Size 2T - Size 8.

I have never been dissappointed with a pattern from Carla C. Everything is explained in such detail. The finished skirt is extra twirly and looks absolutly adorable. I love that it uses so little fabric Awesome tutorial

Done in perfect Carla C style, with great instructions. Perfect for beginners and anyone who doesn't want to do the match to figure out the proportions for a twirl skirt. Also, lots of instruction on different embellishments.

I have made several of these skirts now. The pattern is GREAT! I have also made several using just one fabric. They are just as cute. I always get lots of compliments and my daughters love twirling in them. Carla's Ruffles Unruffled made things SO much easier. Keep up the good work!

These instructions are easy to follow with a section on embellishments and even comes with paper patterns! The skirts are super full and great for twirling around. I made some of my own cut adjustments and embellishments are got a great skirt. Will definitely be making tons of these for my princess. Thanks Carla for this great pattern.

This pattern was so easy to follow. The directions are clear and concise. I am a self-taught beginning seamstress and I have only made one other skirt ever. I was able to make this skirt in about 3 hours from ironing the fabric to sewing it all together. My daughter just loves it! Thank you for making such a beautiful pattern!
