I got this skirt on a sale panel at Joanne's.All I had to do was cut out the circle and the waist band and add a zipper. So I can barely say that I sewed it, but it was super easy, I loved the fabric and I already had a blue sweater to go with it. Its going to be great for working in during the fall/winter. 3 cheers for a $4 skirt!

How cute! And, it doesn't matter if it is 'sew' simple. It's still made by you and you should be proud! It looks very good!

Your skirt is super cute! The first time I saw the panels at Joann's, I talked myself out of buying one because they were too expensive. Recently, I saw them on the clearance rack, and talked myself out of one AGAIN because I wasn't sure how it would look. But you've inspired me to go back and pick up my own $4 skirt panel! Three cheers, indeed!

I have yet to see these panels at the fabric stores around here. Maybe everyone else bought them while I wasn't looking??  That's definitely a cute skirt!


Where did all this fabric come from? I CAN'T have bought THAT much!

So what if all you had to do was cut a circle and put in a zipper, MAKE people think you designed it!  Wink  I recently bought what I thought was just really cute fabric from Walmart's clearance, but it turned out to be a panel skirt.  So glad to know that it'll look great!

Are there different sizes for these panels?  I am a borderline 18W so I don't know if it would work for me.

Well, they let you cut for small, med and large, but the waist band is plain black. I think it would be pretty easy to insert some extra panels if the waist hole isn't round enough as it is. And of course, just cut a waist band to fit your measurements. I don't know if that makes sense or not, but I think that in the case of this skirt, you could just buy some cotton in a complementary color, and add some bands vertically so you would have a circular skirt with an alternating pattern and solid vertical stripe. That would look cool and increase the circumference of the waist.

Yayy. I bough that same one.
[I'm thinking of putting some of the purply blue colored ribbon around the bottom with a little bow, maybe.]
I bought a rather large amount of those things. mom thought they were amazing, and I looooove circle skirts.
