Autumn Circle Skirt, Sort of…

This is is a circle skirt I recently made, and I have a feeling it will be the first of many more to come. I may even become known as the lady who wears “those” skirts, lol.

I really love this skirt, and although I had to take off about six or seven inches and still have a good sized hem (I must be really short), it was super fast and easy. For more pictures and details visit my blog Betsy’s Baby here. Bye y’all!

  • I’ve found on 1950s/early 1960s patterns I almost always have to cut off about 6 inches from the hem – and usually I have to add length to most patterns. I like to think that it’s what was considered decent back then.

  • I hemmed it just below the knee, but I’m guessing it was supposed to be mid calf. I also wondered if it was meant to be worn with a crinoline it needed to be slightly longer. I haven’t quite made the leap to crinolines yet, but my daughter really wants one, and I think that’s what keeps me from trying them. I am short though, and have the same problems with ready to wear modern clothes. Mid calf patterns end up at my ankles, lol.
