I look forward to your costumes each year!  Can't wait to see what you do!

Aww Thank You! I'm shooting for two of them this year. Wife's will be done first and then little man gets his. Her's has to be done earlier for a party. I'm sure his will still be getting finished up to the time he has to wear it as usual. lol

basically, yeah, a circular skirt but you fold the fabric up before cutting the circle for the waist...

You don't want the waist circle to be in the middle, but at one end of the circle to make it uneven on purpose...




Thank you ladies!  This makes much more sense than what I was thinking.

I'm trying to make a costume for my wife and she wants the skirt like this one (pic below) that drops in the back. I've been brainstorming on how to do it and think I may have it figured out but would like to see if my thinking is correct.

1) Draw out a regular circle skirt pattern.
2) Come in some from both sides and draw a tapered line down lower than the regular circle.
3) Cut it out and trim the drop off of everything except the back.

Maybe this is more complicated than I'm thinking. Won't this put the drop on 4 sides the way the fabric is folded for the circle skirt?

Is there an easier way to do this than I'm thinking?

Any help would be awesome. This will be my first skirt I've ever made but I'm not one to back down from a challenge so it has to be made one way or another. Thanks in advance for any help!

Here's an example of the skirt I'm trying to make.

That is really awesome! It's even better that you designed it yourself!

That purse turned out really good! My next project is going to be a purse for my wife, I hope it turns out as good as yours did.

-Sitting there with $240 worth of material to sew and the sewing machine decides to quit working.

-Having to wait 5 days to get another one shipped in.
-Realizes I should of had this done 2 weeks ago because I need to start on Christmas presents. Uuugh!

-You start sewing late at night and realize you forgot something and no one's open at 11 p.m.
-Bobbin got me last night, found out the out of bobbin alarm is still me cussing with a new machine.
-Buying the bolt of fabric and going back to get more and it's still not in stock.
-Your finger keeps getting in the way of the needle bar and it's about to turn blue from beating it so many times. lol

Is there a sound when your bobin is empty?

Forget all the fancy stitches and what else, but that sound when your bobin is empty.....epic!

Honestly, I don't know. I haven't gone through one yet. I know there was one my last machine, the sound of me cussing when it ran out. lol

My embroidery machine lets me know when the bobbin is running out. When it stops and says low bobbin thread it isn't kidding. There is about 4 wraps on the bobbin left. I've always hated that sound and wish you could just put a spool somewhere for the bobbin thread.

7 layers of denim?!?! Wow. Sounds like a dream. I'm still jealous. lol. Enjoy your machine. I hope you write up a review on it. (and you share lots of projects..) Love the costumes you've made. Incredible.


I'll be sure to write a review after I've used it awhile. My first one came in last Friday and it wouldn't work. Got the replacement yesterday. Works this time. I should have bought a better machine a long time ago, wow what I was missing. Thanks for the comment on the costumes. Cheesy
