I made my first circle skirt during following Caseys’s Elegant Musings Sew Along. It was really great to follow: I learnd a new way to insert the zipper and to attach the waistband. I used a fabric (heavy cotton-poly-mix in navyblue) that I stocked for two years, waiting to use them for the right project. The blue color inspired me to craft the skirt with sailor look. So I added two white stripes parallel to the hemline and fixed two little bows. Another detail is the white cotton with rosy-roses-print as lining for the waistband. The skirt is not lined, but I sewed a “second” circle skirt out of very light white cotton to wear him as underskirt/petticoat.
I’m so happy with the result that I’m looking forward to every day and event, I can wear them.
