What Is a Circle Skirt?
A circular skirt is a type of an A-line skirt that flares out from the waist, giving it a perfect round shape that resembles, well, you guessed it, a circle. A full circle skirt is essentially a large circle of fabric that has an opening in the center for the waist. Not only do circle skirts flatter your figure, they are an extremely popular trend this season.
There are many types of circle skirts, from full circle skirt, half circle skirt to double circle skirt. Our circle skirt pattern is for a three quarter circle skirt with double slit. You can definitely make a circle skirt without a pattern, just using a circle skirt calculator, but why not eliminate a few extra steps and just make life easier with a fully tested pattern that is guaranteed to make the sewing experience more enjoyable.

How much fabric do you need for your diy skirt? The table below indicates how much fabric you will need for your size, based on a fabric that is 140-150cm wide. If you want to use a different width or design (like stripes, plaids, etc.), you may need to adjust the placement of the pieces to fit within your available width.
Important! Test your fabric for shrinkage (contraction) before cutting it by ironing the material at its maximum heat recommendation. This will ensure that your finished garment will retain its intended size after initial wash.
