Before putting on a dress my 4-year-old asks does it twirl? Ohhh... how my daughters love twirly skirts and tutus. I found this awesome simple pattern online. The best twirling skirt yet! Laurel and Iris agree! Once you get it down you can make a skirt in under an hour. Fabric and elastic ballpark around $7-8, if you shop wisely. Lots of fun and easy for beginners! A yard of fabric and elastic!
