Why yes, I have made another circle skirt. I keep making them partly b/c of my new obsession with them, and b/c they are so easy to make and so easy to wear! This skirt is 1/2 circle skirt w/ an elastic waistband. For the hem I used a new technique where I first serged the raw edge then just rolled the hem up as it was going through my sewing machine. For the fabric, I used some leftover stretch bengaline I had from making my purple dress. The skirt has a very nice drape too b/c of the fabric. I may just have to make some more sskirts using this fabric. Eventually, my wardrobe will probably just consist of circle skirts…but hey, I have no objections with that! =D
Plan a weekend getaway in these sweater dresses and furry accessories.
