Every purchase comes gift wrapped just like candy. Instead of throwing out our leftover fabric, we re-cut it and use it as gift wrap.

The girls then use the fabric for making fun headwear, scarves, doll blankets..you name it!

Repurposing is good for the planet and good for the imagination!

Hi, I'm the owner of TwirlyGirl. If you have a moment, I'd like to explain our pricing.

There's been a lot of talk recently about bringing manufacturing jobs back to America, and we're doing something about it. All of our garments are proudly made in Los Angeles, CA. The cost of American labor is substantially higher than it is overseas… especially when compared to major brands that are almost certainly employing sweatshop workers. Morally, this doesn't sit right with us. I don't plan on lining our pockets by exploiting the work of others. Especially when there are plenty of skilled workers in this country who deserve to be paid a fair wage.

So while we can't compete with these brands on pricing, we can beat them on quality. It's a little difficult to convey the quality of our garments on a website. You can't feel the softness of the fabrics. Nor can you see the quality of our stitching. Both of these attributes are what make our garments retain their shape and stand up to rigorous wear. To someone trained in garment construction, the difference is night and day. Of course, we back it all up with excellent customer service. Returning customers and great word of mouth has built our brand.

But back to our quality. Is quality that noticeable to a child? You bet it is. So many of our customers tell us that their children insist on wearing TwirlyGirl every day. They struggle to get their kids to take it off long enough to wash! Customers also tell us that their kids wear our clothing for 2+ years. We design our styles with growing room. Girls tend to grow up, not out. And because of our high quality, it still looks like new and will often get passed down to the next child. These are the comments of actual customers, and you can read them on the blue Reviews Tab on our website.

We believe every woman remembers her favorite childhood dress. She loved how it felt, and how it MADE her feel. TwirlyGirl operates with that one goal in mind: to create her favorite dress or skirt. To do this, there has to be something magical about every garment. Take for example our reversible twirly dresses. For a child, owning a reversible dress is the coolest thing ever. A reversible dress requires twice the fabric, twice the stitching, and twice the labor. That works out to be around $43 per dress. For a high quality dress Made in the USA, we believe the price is very reasonable. Our non-reversible clothing may not require as much fabric, but the added design elements increase our costs. (Wings might grow on fairies, but they don't grow on trees!) Put simply, these are not disposable, mass-market garments. Each version is produced in limited quantities with a lot of care and attention to detail. It's why girls will remember their TwirlyGirl dress or skirt forever.

I started sewing TwirlyGirl as a special gift to my two daughters. Soon other moms asked if I would sew dresses for their children. A business was born! In the beginning, I hand sewed them on our dining room table. Ten years later, we're a national brand and it's because we've found an abundance of customers who share our values. And because of our success, we're able to donate a portion of all sales to Childhelp, a national non-profit that helps abused children.

Over the years we've received plenty of comments about how expensive we are, but not once has a customer told us it wasn't worth it.

Happy Twirling,

Take Your Time


In 1510, there lived a young Spanish girl named Alicia Ontanilla Gil. Alicia was the type of girl who was always in a rush. She always wanted to be the first to school, the first out of school, the first to get lunch, and the first to bus her tray. So when Alicia heard that the Fountain of Youth might be somewhere in the New World, it should comes as no surprise that she wanted to be the first to find it.  

"It's just a myth," warned her parents. "It doesn't exist!"

But Alicia could never be discouraged, and she would be the first to admit that. 

She packed her belongings and booked passage on a Spanish Galleon set for Caribbean. The voyage was long and perilous. When she arrived on the shores of this strange land, she was exhausted. But young Alicia would not rest. She pushed her way to the front of the ship so she could be the first off, and bound through the thick forest, trailblazing a path using only her karate-chop hands as a machete. For forty-nine days, Alicia pushed her way through the underbrush, determined to find the sacred source of everlasting youth. On the fiftieth day, Alicia came upon a clearing in the woods. And there, perched upon a rock, sat a golden chalice filled to the brim with the glittery liquid she had long dreamed of finding.

"It's the Fountain of Youth," shouted Alicia.  "I shall be the first to live forever!"  

Alicia raced to the chalice, ironically forgetting that once she achieved mortality, she would never need to hurry again. And it was this last act of haste that would lead to Alicia's downfall. As she frantically raised the Cup of Eternal Life to her lips, she spilled the drink all over her beautiful dress.  The young girl gasped in horror. It was the garment, not poor Alicia, that would achieve immortality.  

Dear readers, this is the exact dress that Alicia wore that fateful day, over five-hundred years ago. And thanks to that fateful spill, it looks as good as the day she first wore it.
