rabbitrabbit - for a skirt with an underneath layer, I use fishnet, not tulle. Tulle is really stratchy, but I used a nice soft white fishnet instead so it wouldn't stratch.

indigo flower girl - depends on how long you want the skirt really. the one pictured is knee length, and I used about 1m x 70 cm for it. You can always trim it down if needed.

They're my first circle skirts, and i didn't use a pattern as such. What do you think?
 Here's the tutorial as promised! If you're having trouble understanding it, let me know!


thanks!  i have some pretty wool i wanted to make a cute (maternity) skirt out of & i think this will be a breeze.  does the t-shirt waistband hold up well (for an ever expanding belly, lol)?

The tute was very self explanatory and great, but I'm confused. I have a black velvety twin set. I was thinking a pink circle skirt would go neat with it. I want to try this, but I can use an old formal dress to make the skirt if neccessary.

So I started by getting 2 squares of expendable fabric. I followed the tute and got a poncho instead of a skirt. The 2nd time, I got a skirt. Now you all used stretchy waist bands and non stretch sheet type cotton. My skirt wouldn't make it over my hips or down my chest. My waist is around 31 in and my hips approx 39 in.

Any suggestions besides a zipper(or exercise LOL)?

ETA: Here's a link to item #412368 on overstock

I want more poof like your circle skirts and no tulle or flower. I think I can do it with more info on the waistband and gathers in the sheet skirt pics. Thanks.

I had a similar problem with my circle skirt except that the waistband ended up being to big. I used stretchy purple material and cut it to 26in. My waist is 28. after cutting the circle and attaching the waist band it was waaaay too big. I ended up putting elastic in the waist band and now it fits great!

URGH! I had the exact same problem! I made a pleated skirt and my first attempt, it was way too big! I ended up eyeballing the yolk by sewing it with a "curve"...

kinda hard to explain but i'm taking basic dressmaking tomorrow so hopefully i'll be posting tips tomorrow LOL!

great tutorial, thanks!   Kiss

i made my own:

the waistband is made out of an old HUGE turtle neck, and the rest is a sheet i saw at goodwill and fell in love.

i like it a lot

your fabric is cute and i like the way yours hangs. i tried making one and it came out a little too full. I wasn't exactly sure how big the whole piece should be like before I fold into quarters. I don't know I am about a 2 in skirts so how big do you think it should to get it to hang on me like that??

I was so inspired by this tut that I whipped up like 5 of these skirts!  Here's one of my favorite ones...I hand embroidered a skull with a bow at the hemline.



I'll post more later...thanks so much for the great tut!!!
