Christmas for my girl

I decided to go cheap this Christmas season.  Mostly because all my monies right now need to be sent to non gifting places (well unless you call my home a gift, or heat, health care, water ... WAIT, those ARE gifts and I am thankful for all of them).   Most of my favorite people in the world will get nothing from us this year.  A few of them will get gifts.  Thankfully I have a daughter who really covets nothing other then my time and energy.  A daughter who loves dancing.  A daughter who loves twirly skirts, and wants LONG skirts.  A sewing machine.  Leftover fabric from past quilting projects.  The internet.  A fairly easy "pattern" free from the internet.  A seam ripper.  A "we're not building a piano here" attitude.  Patience for a sewing maching that only works on one stitch length, doesn't have a functional bobbin winder function and randomly stops working.   In the end I have created clothing!!!!

That is great! Do you sew often? Where did you find the instructions? She will love it!

Yes, please post where you found the pattern. I'd love to try. Although, I believe our only leftover fabric in the house is fleece. Might not be a twirly.
