I saw the circle skirt tutorial on here and decided to try it out. I only had to make minor alterations because my fabric had no stretch to it at all. I had to make the waistband extra wide and used a button closure in the back. The little pleat thing in the front was initially an accident (sewing drunk is not always a good idea) but it incorporated it's self into the design well enough. And lucky for me a friend liked the skirt so much she has since commissioned me to make one for her as well.

The pleat is my favorite thing about that skirt (which rocks, by the way).

I love happy accidents.

That looks great.  The pleat was a great addition regardless of it's origin  Smiley

I love the pleat, and great job on the commission, I was so excited I got my first commission a couple weeks ago for a necklace.  I know your friend will love it.

Looks very nice... a good fabric choice. The pleat looks like you put it there on purpose.  Wink

May I make a suggestion? To keep the hem from twisting, either pin it or press it or both before you sew it.

Nice work!

(i didn't read the above replies so sorry if it has been mentioned)


you could put a cool pin/brooch right on that pleat... it looks intentional already but maybe a pin would give it some pizzaz

For help on hemming circle skirts:

I also believe that you could hem a skirt by stitching a close zig-zag stitch around the hem, then folding it up and sewing it down like a regular hem. The zig-zag makes it easier to fold.

I love the wide yoke & the fabric!!  Smiley

 I have a sewing book with a chapter called "Press Now--Or Pay Later."  I have learned a great deal from taking the time to press.
