Pillowcase "twirling" skirt

With the countdown to Christmas on, I am trying to complete all my gift projects! When I asked my friend Susan what her daughter Skye (my god-daughter) needed, Susan said that she was really into "twirly" skirts. I found a good tutorial and a calculator on how long to cut each layer of the skirt which was really useful.

This is my second attempt, I didn't like the fabric combination of the first, but I really like this one which was made from fabric strips taken from 4 pillowcases. I intend on making Mia an identical one, but probably not until next summer.


  1. That is so cute! I love the materials!!

  2. she is going to unwrap this present, whip off what ever she is wearing and change into this straight away because I'm sure she's going to LOVE it.

  3. Darling! I love the different pillowcases you used!
