Yes, i am obsessed with circle skirts. I can’t stop making them! This is a 3/4 circle skirt with some tucking detailing at the bottom. My ’ The art of manipulating fabric’ book by Colette Wolff, is where I found this technique. They are cross stitched tucks where some sections are sewn together at regular intervals to create little bows. I like how the weight of the detailing has changed the shape and flare of the skirt.

    My mom bought that book several months ago, and it’s a real jewel. Your skirt is so pretty! I love it.

    This is so sweet. I have that book and I didn’t even see that technique. Perhaps I should read it!
