I found this lovely vintage-bicycle fabric in Jo-Ann Fabrics a few weeks ago and absolutely loved it. I wasn't sure what it would be. A dress or skirt for me was the original plan. But when I pulled it out today, it just seemed like the perfect little twirly skirt for a baby girl.
I followed the instructions on two different blogs, Made (danamadeit.com) and Pink Suede Shoe. I wanted something the size of a six month old, but a didn't want to make it too bunchy with having it double-layered and reversible, like the version on the Pink Suede Shoe. So, I pieced together the two versions and have a cute little twirly skirt with vintage bicycles and birds on it. I think it will work well with a pink top and a pair of bloomers.
Instead of hemming the edge, I used a pale pink bias tape to edge the skirt and I decorated the edge with a white grosgrain ribbon.
