This is a circle skirt I made yesterday out of some fabric I found in the linen closet.  I hope no one needed it.  I made the waistband out of an old Jimi Hendrix t-shirt that I already screwed up in an attempt to recon it.  I think I'll make it into a pillow, now.  And I am fully aware that there are little yellow dots and staind on my skirt.  I couldn't wait to wash it before I took the picture and made this thread.  And the hem is all joogled (which isn't a real word,) but I pretty much knew it was going to come out that way.  But I still love the swishy-ness of this skirt, the color I'm not too fond of.

And about the tut:
On my several pathetic attempts to make something wearable, I've searched for circle skirt tuts.  None of the ones I found seemed to detail exactly how you were supposed to convert your waist measurement to a quarter of a circle.  So yesterday when I decided I'd make one, I was worried about this.  Then I realized it was really quite easy to do the waist measurement-to quarter circle thing.  So I made this tut today.  On the tut, we're working off of a 32 inch waist measurement and an 18 inch long skirt.  If anything is unclear or you have any questions, e-mail me at llergictowonderbread@yahoo.com.  I have a snakeing suspicion that Photobucket is going to resize the picture, so e-mail me if you want me to e-mail it to you, also.
Anyway, now that I've droned on long enough, without further ado, here is the tut:
