This clear, easy to follow tutorial has step-by-step instructions and over 60 color photos to teach you how to sew a one-of-a-kind rainbow swirl skirt.
The unique nature of this tutorial teaches you not only how to sew the skirt, but gives simple formulas and clear instructions on how to create the pattern pieces in custom sizing, from toddlers to a full-figured woman.
Sew the skirt with quilters cottons, linen, hemp, or any other lightweight material. Make it in a rainbow, or choose hues from the same color palate. The possibilities are endless, and the choices are all yours!

Fabrics are pre-washed, so the finished product will not shrink the first time you wash it.
I shop at local quilt shop's for my cottons whenever possible, and hemp and organic cotton blends purchased from a fair-trade supplier.
Items made from up cycled materials are of varying fiber contents, but I do describe these to the best of my ability.
The dyes I use are high quality, and chemically bond with the fibers for a rich, long lasting color that does not fade over time and will not bleed in the wash.
All seams are top stitched at stress points, and serged for a professional finish. Appliques are individually hand drawn, heat bonded and satin stitched.
