Make your own circle skirts with this pdf sewing pattern. Circle skirts are super easy to make and lots of fun to wear. The full circle design gives maximum ‘twirl’, making them fantastic for both dance and everyday. The skirts are ‘pull-on’ style with an elasticised waist (so no messing about with buttons or zips) and can be made from either stretch or woven fabrics.
This pattern will make character skirts, poodle skirts, sailor skirts, panel skirts and rainbow panel skirts in girls sizes 1-14 years.
The character, poodle and sailor skirts are the quickest and easiest to make (and I’ve even included a pattern for a sailor collar to help you go completely nautical and complete the ‘sailor look’). The 12-panel skirt is gorgeous for everyday wear and a great way to use up those ‘had-to-have fabrics’ they are lining the cupboard. The rainbow skirt looks great for dance as the colours blend together when you spin.
All my patterns feature:
·Full size, computer drafted pattern pieces in all sizes specified that can be printed on a standard letter or A4 home printer (so no resizing is necessary)

As a 55 year old who has never sewn I bought this pattern as my first project. I used it to make 2 12 panel skirts and 3 1/2 circle skirts all in different sizes for my grand daughters. I was going to make them all as rainbow skirts but got too tired! I had them all done withing 2 weeks. I cut the largest panels first then as the size decreased I was able to decrease the size of the templates. The directions were very clear and easy to follow. I did have a bit of a problem making the waist bands but somehow they all cam out. I used satins that I found on sale for the panel skirts and then a ruffled nylon for the 1/2 circle skirts. They all turned out beautifully!
My daughter who is 9 started sewing over a year ago. She has 50's day coming up at school and wanted to dress like Sandy in the movie Grease. We ordered the circle skirt and it took her about 4 hrs to make. I would say this is a great sight, once you get use to the print layout of patterns. It took a bit to figure out but, now its a now brainer and we already went through some other items that we are going to order for her next project.
