I used Gertie's New Book for Better Sewing to complete two circle skirts.
I've seen so may of these on pinterest and in the stores.
The first one is a half circle from black cotton leftover from another project. I made it a little shorter than my inspiration photos. I was unsure of a full skirt being too young and girly plus I did not have enough fabric
to make it fuller and longer.
I did a simple narrow hem after serging the raw edge
This turned out to be such a simple satisfying project I decided I should make another, this time longer and fuller like the inspiration photos. I knew I wanted the fabric to have a nice drape and I found a pretty blue poly crepe from Nancy's Sewing Basket. I usually stay away from Polyester but found this to be really nice.
I paired the skirt with a orange silk blouse from my mother in law's stash of vintage vintage stash that she sent. It is part of her going away suit for after her wedding. I usually do not go for color, prints, and bows but, I rather like it with the skirt.
The skirt is exactly what I wanted full but not poofy, and if I wanted to twirl I can.
