This skirt was made as part of a Circle Skirt Sew-Along I hosted recently. We went through how to take measurements, draft a custom pattern, sew it up and finish it.
The second circle skirt I made was what I like to call my Winter Nights Skirt. The fabric is a curious sortsimilar in weight to taffeta and has a woven, slightly plush pattern. Surprisingly it was in the outerwear section of the fabric store, but reminded me of the fabric used in a 1950s vintage circle skirt I have (but can only wear once-in-a-blue moon as it has a tiny waist!). This was a far more simple skirt than the previous one, as I wanted to let the fabric speak for itself (though yes, I was tempted to add beads scattered across the skirtI may eventually!). I used horsehair braid around the hem and really love how it added body and bounce, without having to wear a petticoat. This is probably one that will get a lot of wear this winter, since it looks just as at-home with my striped tshirts as cashmere sweaters!
