Modern Circle Skirt

in Skirts

Hello! First time contribution after reading for quite a while. This is a skirt I made for my sister. She dresses in skirts every day and is pretty much always 50′s era themed. This skirt has multicolored birds as the main fabric. I’ve made a LOT of these for her so I can do them in my sleep by now. Very simple basic pieces that she wears all the time.

This is one I made for her LONG ago that’s got a big floral print on it.

Hi! I'm a twenty something engineer working in Elko NV that loves to sew all sorts of things on my off time. For myself it varies between retro and steampunk/victorian. But i make a LOT of stuff for my sister who is always 50's. I also make soaps and perfumes that I sell in my etsy shop.

Loving the prints, but especially that contrasting blue border top and bottom! Circle skirts are one of the really fun basics. :)

Do you have a pattern that you use? A friend of mine asked me to make her a circle skirt, and I’ve done them by drafting my own pattern for little kids but not an adult and I’m a little intimidated.

Diana, Check out this link.

It calculates full, 3/4, and half circle skirt measurements for you

It’s based off of McCall’s 5431 with a few tweaks.
