Printed Circle Skirt

     Hello everyone, I hope that you all had a wonderful week. It has been a weird winter here in Georgia, but Saturday was a beautiful day. We spent the whole day outdoors and boy were the little ones happy about that.

     Today I am going to share with you all a beautiful and twirlicious skirt that I made. I went on my weekly trip to Joann’s Fabric and found this lovely fabric with famous historical buildings from the fashion capitals printed onto the fabric. The print reminds me of my travel to Paris and New York, hopefully I can add London to the list one day. I brought the fabric home and immediately went to work making a circle skirt with a waist band and side zipper. I wore it to to church and received so many compliments on it, I felt like the bell of the ball.

How was the skirt made?: I made the skirt using a circle skirt pattern that I self drafted a long time ago by taking my waist measurements and dividing it by 6.28. I then measure the length that I wanted the skirt to be and then just connected the dots and cut the pattern out on craft paper. If you want to learn more about how to make a circle skirt, there are many videos out there on youtube.

Was it easy to make?: Circle skirts are one of the easiest things to make, it gets more difficult when you add more technical details like pockets, zipper, lining with zipper, etc. Hemming a circle skirt can get a little tricky because of the curves of the skirt, but if you form your hem and then press it, sewing it is much easier. You can even use hem tape to make thing easier. Circle skirts were actually one of the first things that I learned to sew as a beginner sewer.

What I’m wearing : I am wearing the circle skirt with a knit and mesh top that was gifted to me by a friend for my birthday, black leggings, and my favorite booties that I bought at DSW shoes.

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog, it is so appreciated. Until next time, have a great week.
