How To Sew a Circle Skirt Video Tutorial

by Rachel Baker on February 26, 2014

Last week, I decided to try my hand at fabric dyeing and then making a skirt out of it. I now have a lovely yellow skirt (dyed with curry powder and red pepper flakes) made from an white bedsheet used for a conference table several years ago.

The projecct was so much easier than I thought it would be, and it made me yearn for more skirt making. I saw this tutorial below and decided to post it and thusly make a part of the list of things I will be trying over the next few months.

This tutorial is for a classic circle skirt (think 50’s style poodle skirt). The other variations of the circle skirt can be found here.

If your circle skirt turned out ginormous and you’re left scratching your head, check this out.

Step 1

Cut a waistband out of stretchy fabric or stretch lace. It should be large enough to stretch over your hips, but small enough that it stays put on your waist. For shiggles, let’s say our example waistband is 40″ wide.
