Hello!
This is the first time that I ask you for help, and sorry for my English, but it sucks.
I bought yesterday a really pretty fabric with a border from flowers, something like this: http://muertoderisa.typepad.com/muerto_de_risa/images/animal_skirt.jpg (except for the animals Tongue)
Now I want to make a circleskirt (is that how you call it?) BUT, I don't want to cut the flowerborder.
Is there anybody who understand me and wants to help me making my circleskirt?
Thank you!!

(oeh..I love the spell check!)

Hmm, I don't think you'd need to cut the border for the circle skirt? Maybe I'm thinking of something else.

You don't need to cut the border for a circular skirt, you just need to cut for the waist, ask in one of the clothing forums.  I know there is a formula to get the right sized circle but can't think of it at the moment.
Ask here:

If you want to make a true circle skirt, you will have to cut it, sorry to say.  Here is a link to basic circle skirt instructions:  http://www.raqs.co.nz/howto/skirt.html

BUT there are other options.  You could make a skirt using panels in the shape of rectangles that taper to your hip shape.  If you wanted more "flounce" and "twirl" you could do the same thing using triangle shapes.  This could essentially be the same things as your cirlce skirt.  Another option is to us rectangular panels and add godets.  This give the skirt a really flirty and fun twist and the possibilities of twirlability are endless.  Here's a link to adding godets if you're interested.  [ur]http://thesewingdivas.wordpress.com/2007/03/21/draft-a-skirt-with-godets/[/url]

I hope you are happy with your end result.  It looks like you've chosen a really fun fabric and you could end up with a really cool skirt!
