A Circle Skirt Tutorial

Today I was searching the interwebs for fun and fast tutorials and I think I may have found the jackpot on the Made blog! I personally am all about skirts for Spring and Summer since they're light, airy and so much fun to wear! Circle Skirts with elastic waistbands have been all over stores so why not take this trend to the next level and make your own with your favorite fabrics. I'm thinking any of the pretty prints from Central Park, Sweet Nothings or Chrysalis would be absolutely adorable! These are SO simple to create a pattern for, especially the way Dana breaks it down. Plus, once you have your pattern, you can knock out 4 of these puppies in an hour! Talk about an economical wardrobe. ;) 

Loving the adult version! (Check out Dottie for super cute polka dots!) She even has a tutorial for dying elastic for an extra special pop! I promise, you won't find anything nearly as cute at a store. And who doesn't want the satisfaction of making something yourself? Especially when the end result is so fabulous and takes practically no time at all!

Get the full instructions including how to create the pattern to fit any size here!
