I am looking for a free pattern to make a toddler girl's twirly skirt like this:
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php...ng_id=16306095

I am wondering if I could make it without a pattern?

I am also looking for a free pillowcase dress pattern.

Thanks for any help!

this tutorial looks like you could use it and adapt it quite easily to match the etsy one.

Hey! One of my favourite blogs just posted a tutorial on a twirly skirt for a toddler/child. This might be helpful too!

Tiered twirly skirt:

Those are cute, but for really fun twirls, I'd go for a pointed hem skirt of some sort. The easiest is a handkerchief hem. You take two squares of fabric, cut a hole for waist in the center, bind them together, and spin!

If you have a surplus of men's ties (thrift store sales, garage sales), you can make an awesome twirly skirt from those!
