Hello! My name is Madi and this is my art blog! This is were I am going to be posting my art and maybe even a few cosplays! I am 18 and i currently reside in Ohio. My date of birth is the 15th of July and I am not in a relationship! (i like women. JK I like people in general.)
Alrighty so, the skirt I made was a circle skirt and they are super easy to make :)
So you will need your fabric, I got the Star Trek fabric from Joann’s but you could probably find some online somewhere. I got 2 yards and my waist is 26 inches. (you need a lot of fabric to make a circle skirt ha)
Next go to circleskirtpattern.com and it will tell you most of what you need to know about the pattern itself. (when entering measurements keep the hem in mind. I usually leave at least a few inches Just in case.)
My skirt was made up of 4 parts each part being one fourth of a circle (obviously).
Then you’re gonna sew it good sides facing each other. (I left some space for a zipper. but you can use elastic. When I made my friend’s, I used elastic in it.)
For the top part i just cut a strip and folded it until i liked the size of it? Then I turned the skirt inside out and just kinda pinned the band to the skirt and sewed it? (I’m super professional I know).
When hemming the bottom of the skirt I just fold it twice so that the raw edges weren’t showing, make sure it’s straight all the way around, then sew it.
I put in the zipper, with that its better to have a zipper foot on your machine (unless you’re sewing by hand, but if you don’t have a zipper foot that’s okay), by simply sewing around the zipper.
Lastly, you finish all of your edges by using the zigzag stitch. (this is important because if you don’t finish the raw edges the fabric will unravel itself)
If you have any questions or need a visual, just send me an ask I would be happy to help further :D
