DollybyDesign: Handmade in March (DIY Simple Circle Skirt)

Wanted to share this new brilliant blue circle skirt that my friend, Alisha R., taught me how to make!

Here are the materials I used:

  • 3 yards of fabric (NOTE: please be sure to use appropriate fabric for skirts. I accidentally bought the wrong cotton blend, and now the skirt is too wrinkly and see-through b/c it’s not the appropriate thickness. But don’t worry…I wear it with thick leggings!)
  • Matching or coordinating thread
  • Sewing Machine
  • Scissors
  • Measuring Tape
  • Needles

Here is a tutorial you can use (since Alisha’s major focuses on fashion and sewing, she is the one who really helped me make my own pattern, but please use the tutorial provided-because not everyone has a personal seamstress, like Alisha, on hand!) (ALSO: a fun step to add to the circle skirt tutorial would be to incorporate pockets for your skirt-that will DEF be my next skirt project!)

I did not take step by step photos (SORRY), but here is my finished product:

(Total time: 2 hours= YAY!)

Here’s where DollybyDesign Dress for LESS comes in: I paired this brilliant blue circle skirt with a white lace top from Forever21 ($15.80) & a gold necklace from Forever21 ($6.00) (which, FYI ALL their Jewelry is 30% OFF this week, and their jewelry is already super cheap…so go check it out!)

Once again, thanks for reading! Happy Spring (or should I say…Happy Never-Ending Winter)

Love, DollybyDesign
