I found some bright spring fabrics and decided to try out the circle skirt idea. They were not difficult. I may be making more!

The first one is a super bright fun fabric.

Next I tried one with pockets in a cool vintage fabric with a ribbon hem.

The last one has a fun little fish applique hiding among the coral and a ribbon hem.

Circle skirts are quick and very swirly!

I have the first fabric!  Grin and I also made a circle skirt with it, but mine is about 3 inches shorter.

I also made a duffel bag with it.

And turned some of the flowers into patches for my jeans.

That's just awesome fabric!

Eco-friendly items, patterns, hippies, and more.

I'm on Ravelry, too!

Yeah, fluffybaka. The lady at the fabric store was in love with that fabric and was jealous Smiley She told me to think of her when I used that fabric. I love it! I made this one longer because I have a friend that complained that she is long from waist to knees and all the skirts she likes are too short. So I was experimenting with a little longer length for figures like hers.

Thanks, everyone!

clivestaples-(love that username, btw) I just figured out the width of a low waist and measured it about 3.25 inches in from the edge. Then to leave room  to turn the waistband, I went in about 1 inch toward the corner. I used the tute, on this thread, minus the top part. Once I had it cut out, I cut a slit up one side and adjusted it to fit, keeping in mind that I needed to turn the waistband.

Those are adorable! Great job. I love the first one especially because of the awesome fabric. Grin I may have to make some spring skirts now...

xcrunnergirl- Thanks! You should make them. It is really super simple to make circle skirts once you've made one or more. Try it, it's kind of addictive?! Smiley
