Circle Skirt...

Here is the circle skirt I made last night. It is the quickest piece of clothing I have ever made!!! The tutorial is written by Dana, over at Made. Dana's step by step instructions are clear, detailed and easy to follow, with numerous photos, so you can't possibly go wrong.



  • Draft the pattern. (You will need measurements for the child who is to wear the skirt.)
  • Cut the fabric. (It looks like a large donut.)
  • Sew the elastic ends.
  • Attach the elastic to the top of the skirt.
  • Hem the skirt.
This photo shows the colour the best...


That's all there is to it. There are no seams and no gathers. The skirt hangs and twirls beautifully. What little girl wouldn't LOVE a skirt like this?

  10. Adorable! Love the polka dots! I actually just stitched up a circle skirt out of red gingham for myself for my Halloween costume(Little Red Riding Hood.) I like how you went with a wide elastic band, so much prettier than an elastic pocket. Thanks for sharing.

    I'm hosting my monthly Before Blogging Throwback Thursdays party and would love it if you'd come and share something you made/did/bought sometime before blogging. Can't wait to see what you share at the party.

  19. very cute skirt! I had a similar skirt when I was a girl. Was it grey? I don't remember. But it was definitely full and twirly :-)

    It might even work for a young woman, perhaps in a crisper fabric. I'm thinking red, with a tad of white eyelet/lace trim... Short length. I wonder!
