This twirly skirt by Lil Blue Boo was the very first knit/jersey pattern I ever made (Oh my goodness take a look at how little my baby looks in those photos - ahhhhh!). She has virtually worn those two skirts threadbare so it was time for a new one.
Day 2 - Twirl Skirt by Lil Blue Boo
It was almost impossible to get a photo of Miss 5 not mid spin in this skirt. So apologise for the slightly blurry photos! Not a bad thing really. She loves it!
I used the same knit for the waist band as I wanted it all to be the same fabric. It doesn't have as much stretch in it though. Fine for my skinny mini but I will have to be careful in the future.
You can't see from these photos but I also did top stitching down each of the panel joins as an extra feature. Look, it counts ok! (Yeah likely I'm the only one who will ever notice).
This knit is from Spotlight last year. I'm hoping it will soften up with another wash. It is quite stiff.
