In an effort to be craftier and more creative I decided to use up some of last year's Halloween costume fabric (she was Jessie from Toy Story 3) for a twirly skirt for the big girl. She has been enjoying dancing lately (not in any formalized class, but just around the house) so I figured that she'd love a skirt that would spin beautifully. And what better skirt for spinning than a circle skirt!
I found a great method for sewing a circle skirt here so I pulled out my leftover cow print fabric, purchased some wide elastic and had at it.
It came together pretty quickly. The tutorial says it should take half an hour or something, but since I'm a novice and I have major small-people type distractions, it took me about 2 hours start to finish.
