I’ve never made a circle skirt before. I’ve heard that they are super-easy, and yes, they really are. And too cute!
The pattern is The Circle Skirt, a free tutorial by Dana Willard of MADE. You can find it, along with many other skirt designs, in my Sewing Project Roundup post How to Make a Girl’s Skirt. Dana’s tutorial is so easy to follow – thanks, Dana! When Chloe first put this skirt on, she instinctively twirled 🙂
The fabric is 100% quilting cotton. The selvage says: DeLovely 2010 Cosmo Cricket by Andover Fabrics. I love the tiny little rose bud design.
Add a Target tank top and call ‘er good.
I put my twist on the pattern by sewing in some leggings and cut them to length. Chloe likes to feel pretty in a skirt AND actively play outside. With these, she can do both in a modest way. As a mother of a 6 year-old, built-in modesty shorts make me feel at ease. Now she can ride her bike with a skirt on!
