Here, we show you how to make a patternless circle skirt, sweet and simple. With just a little basic geometry and a big piece of fabric, you are on your way to a beautiful wrap skirt. We are drawing two concentric circles: the inner circle is the waistline, and the outer circle is the hem. The difference between the inner and outer circles’ circumference measurements creates a gentle, lovely fullness. (This method works for a shorter skirt on a wide fabric. For a longer skirt and/or wider waist, you may have to use seams in your circle.)
2 yards wide fabric, snap, 2 pieces 1” D-ring hardware, tape measure
Dress up outerwear with deep shawl collars and sew up a lovely fitted dress with a flounced hemline.
