These twirl dresses have something magical because some extra pieces of fabric appear when twirling. Our girls love their Twirl Magic dresses from Ellie and Mac Patterns*.
I made these dresses already a year ago during my last sewing weekend (the first one is 2 years because of Corona). So I cut them out beforehand because I use a projector and I do not want to go back to printing and taping patterns. This means I need to have all my projects cut before I leave for my sewing weekend. I cut out 13 projects and had only 1 left when I returned home after the sewing weekend. That is the perfect score since I do not want end up having too few sewing projects on a sewing weekend.
Once the pattern is cut, sewing is rather quick. I used 2 twirl reveal panels (there is also the option of 4 twirl reveal panels). Since I do not like lined bodices when it is too warm during summer I cut a neckband instead.
I am hoping that my girls have not grown too much so that they can wear these dresses again during this season. I think our eldest might have grown too much, so maybe our middle one is the lucky one with two twirl magic dresses in her closet.
