Twirly wirly skirts

I was asked to make some circular skirts for a dance show.  Yes, of course - let me at 'em!!

Did I know how to make them?


Was I willing to learn as I went on?


Take one complete circle of fabric...

And cut out the hole for the waist...
Then add a waistband.
Easy peasy right?
Um, not quite as straightforward as it sounds!!
First I had to do some calcuations to figure out how large the waist hole ought to be.  I haven't used maths in earnest in years LOL!


When that was sorted out I just had to create the waistband and then hem the bottom.

One of the skirts even had a net underskirt too which could stand up on its own!


And here they are in action!

  1. LOL, I think I would have to google the maths calculations too. Been a long time!
