This September I’m sewing along with Casey at Elegant Musings. A bunch of talented seamsters and I are all making circle skirts, and this post marks the beginning of the saga.
I understand the principles behind a full circle skirt, a three-quarters circle skirt, and a half circle skirt, but I’ve never drafted and made one from scratch. The closest I’ve come to even making this type of skirt is my Lonsdale, which I think has a nearly half circle skirt.
Needless to say, I was excited with Casey of Elegant Musings proposed a Circle Skirt Sew-Along. So far I’ve been able to easily keep up. I’ve taken my measurements (step one), ordered four yards of this Indigo Dyed Batiste (step two), and drafted my pattern (step three).
My hope is that I’ll have enough fabric to also cut a button-down top (maybe the JJ top sans ruffles?) and that when worn together it’ll appear like I’m on-trend with a full-skirted pseudo-shirt dress. I’ll have a better idea once the fabric arrives, which should be early this week!
