Festive full circle skirt

tartan circle skirt

Seems a bit lame to post a circle skirt on here after seeing all the latest amazing vintage dresses on here. But hopefully it still counts as retro and hand made!

I really didn’t expect to get to sew much else before Christmas so I am so pleased it’s entered the wardrobe before 2014! It’s something I’ve had in mind for so long. I love what happens to the circle of tartan when it hangs like this.

And it goes without saying that it makes for a good twirl!

I’ve been making a lot of longer, vintage length skirts recently so it made a change to wear something above the knee. More partylike, methinks!

In case you are wondering, the boots are called Lola Ramona and are from Office. And my most favourite umbrella ever is from Love Umbrellas!

  • Love it! I love my circle skirts and always love seeing how others make them. I usually make long ones, too, but I agree – the above-the-knee ones are fun, too!

    • Thank you Nicole. The longer ones have the advantage of keeping my legs warm in a London winter! :-)

  • Love the skirt, and was going to ask about the boots. Totally adorable outfit.

    • Thank you Jeanette. Yes shoes/boots are my guilty pleasure. I save on the clothes I make so I can kind of justify the expense! ;-)

  • Cute! And the shoes and umbrella are utter perfection.
