Anshu from Sew Pretty Sew Free (and Blooms and Bugs) shows how to make a swirly twirly gypsy skirt for little girls. The skirt is pieced from curved panels to create the swirly stripes and the handkerchief hem. She shares a free pattern in a size 18-24 months, but she also shows how you can draft your own pattern if you need another size. Go to her tutorial.
