Flipping for the Doodle T Flip Skirt!

Not so very long ago, there was a little girl who loved to Flip and Dance.

With all the flipping and dancing, she needed clothes that would move with her.

She also insisted on dressing herself.  Buttons and Snaps.  Zippers and Loops.  Too Tough to Do.

So the Doodle T Flip Dress was Born.

Simple Really.  A Tee Shirt Top with a Flannel Skirt.

Feeling the Softness was Important.   And Flipping Upside Down Showed a New Fun Fabric.

Next.  Sew the Sides to Create a Tube.

The Open Top will be the Waist Band.

Fold the Top Fabric Over to the Underside to Create a Channel for the Elastic.

Weave Elastic through the Channel.

Tip:  With Double Fabric, the Skirt can be a little heavy.  Keep the Elastic Tight to keep the skirt up.

Slippage is Not Good.  🙂
