I didn't have a pattern for a circle skirt, so my mom and I made one up. I wanted a long, flowy skirt, and I found this fabric at Fabricland on Buy 1 get 2 free (metres, just a bit bigger than a yard) She did a lot of the sewing, the fabric is stretchy and a pain to work with. My mom's been sewing for much longer than I've been alive, and she's really good, and she taught me as well. Basically, I measured my waist, calculated the diameter I'd need, and we marked the fabric with pins, folded it and cut it out in a quarter circle. Then we cut out the size of my waist (plus seam) to make a waist band. I sewed the one end of the waist band together, and then sewed it to the inner circle, where my waist would go. Then she sewed the seem. The picture's not the greatest, and do note I am short (5"3) so it's shorter than it looks, but perfect length for me! Thanks!

Not letting "no time" be an excuse anymore. ...now if I could just work on the whole "sanity" bit.
