There’s nothing like a circle skirt

What can I say about circle skirts? I love wearing them. I love making them. I love love love them!

I had my heart set on making a circle skirt from this great pink and purple fabric but alas, I didn’t have quite enough!

So it was math to the rescue and I made a 3/4 circle skirt instead. Slightly less full but no less fun! Do you like circle skirts?

More details here.

Love them! I have two full circle, and two half circle ones that I’ve made. :) Yours is really cute!

Adored them when I was younger. Nice work, and you wear it well!

Oh yes, another circle skirt fan here, just finished one this morning, well as far as the hem, I do hate waiting to hem, but know I’ll get a much better result if I do.
Yours is lovely.
