Twirly, Whirly, and Gray

I needed a skirt for the Peanut to wear—her little sister had a dress and I needed something coordinating.  The Little Miss’s dress is grey wool, and I wanted something simple to go with it.

I picked up some gray suiting material with a nice drape (thank you, JoAnn), and used Carrie’s tutorial for the Easy, Peasy, Whrrly, Twirly Skirt.  It was just what I needed!


I didn’t do the bias tape on the bottom—I just made a simple hem.  It was great to use elastic (I had black) for a waistband and not have to use a casing.

  1. Ooh! I think I need to try this one out! So, is it just a think band of elastic hemmed around the top of the skirt?? The link wasn't working, so I have to pick your brain instead ; ).
