Little, and not so little girls love the all important twirl factor of a circle skirt. There's a problem with directional fabrics and circle skirts, however - the print will end up being upside down at the back. Today's showcased tutorial shows how to overcome that problem to successfully make a circle skirt using directional fabric, with the added bonus of being able to use smaller cuts of fabric.

Now-a-days I tend to use wonder clips as much, or even more than pins. My pins are always at the ready in a pincushion that sits next to my sewing machine.

To review the book properly, I've sewn up one of the bags, which has given me the chance to try out a pattern, follow instructions and see how easy it is to find the required information.
