Circle Skirt: Construction Notes

Vital Stats A classic 1950s circle skirt, cut in cotton for a rockabilly/day look. I'm going to make like a billion of these, because wearing them is so fun. I just spent the evening twirling around the kitchen going WHOOOSH!


Difficulty: Easy. Very recommended as a first project.

Time taken: one evening

Fabrics: mine is a printed cotton kingsize duvet, but felt is another classic choice if you can get a piece big enough.

Instructions/pattern: I actually kinda winged it, but I looked at this tutorial during my research, and it's a good one.

Another thing: For a full 50s look, you also need one or more petticoats - but these are also easy to make. Circle skirts also look OK without petticoats - they don't have the 50s silhouette, but are still fun and fashionable.

Measurements: Skirt Length - 68cm
Center hole radius - 10cm Center hole circumference - 64cm My waist circumference - 75 cm
