I have had a “circle skirt” on my to-do list for-ev-er!! I finally made one and let me tell you – easiest. skirt. ever. Really!! Why didn’t I crank these out sooner?? I used the tutorial at MADE and she tells you how to figure out dimensions, etc. Basically you cut a giant donut shape out of fabric.
I made mine even faster – I didn’t serge or do anything to the waist – I just sewed it right on to the elastic. And then I just serged the bottom – no hemming. Seriously, 10 minutes max.
First I made it for the Summer School Outfit Fail, pictured on the left. Once I switched out the shirt for one more plain and form-fitting, the skirt looked so much better, pictured on the right – see:
Doesn’t it look great?!? Now THIS is a Summer School Outfit! I love the rolled flower I added (yep, just hot-glued it on) to the waistband.
Well then my preschooler declared she wanted one – - so I just said, “let’s do it” and cranked another one out. LOVE projects like that!!
And let me tell you, these Circle Skirts have some serious twirl-ability – that’s the best part!!
Now, to find some 60 in. wide fabric and make myself one……
