Twirly Skirt

Isn't she adorable?
My little lady is modeling her new twirly skirt.
Last year my mom bought her a pack of yellow, orange and green tank tops. We didn't have a lot of shorts to wear with them so I decided since summer is almost over I better get on the ball and make her a skirt to compliment these cute shirts. This morning she decided the orange polka-dot would be the best match for today.
Why not?

I've eyeballed enough tutorials that I figured I could wing this one on my own. A simple fold-over waistband with a ruffle added to the bottom of the body of the skirt. I estimated the fabric strips that I cut using the length of the fabric as the width of the skirt/ ruffle. I'm glad it all worked out because...

She loves her new skirt!
