Studio Tantrum pinwheel!

Doesn't this remind you of a pinwheel? Here is my studio tantrum redondo skirt. I wanted to get my dd in it and twirling, but right now bolt is more interesting, she said she would wear it tomorrow and I could take her picture then! Hmmppff! So, for now you get a pinwheel! Anyhow, this was pretty easy to cut and put together. I didn't add the optional ruffles in the seams because I wanted to get one under my belt before modifications. It turned out cute and I already want to make more! I used the striped fabric for the top portion of the "curl" and the flowers for the bottom portion of the "curl". It is comprised of 5 "curls" that are then sewn together, then the waistband is added and the bottom is a rolled hem. I did the majority of it on the serger with the exception of finishing off the waistband (stitch in the ditch to catch the backside). It is a fun skirt and I am ready to go dig through my stash to see what else could work for another skirt! Later!
