Easy Half Circle Skirt
Making a skirt is practically a no brainer with this easy half circle skirt tutorial! All you need is some knit, a piece of elastic and some free time, not a lot though. And the best part is, you won’t need a pattern, you get to make your own. A quick and easy project you can do in about an hour (except that you will probably need to let your skirt hang over night before hemming; read along for more details).
I’ve made a circle skirt and a half circle skirt before but I never experienced with knits for this kind of projects so this was completely new to me. I was afraid it will be a total fail but turns out working with kits is not that big a deal, even when you don’t own all the sewing tools in the world. The fabric I used is jersey and to me this seemed the safest and easiest knit to work with.
While I love a full circle skirt for girls, I like a half circle skirt better for myself as it’s less full and takes less fabric to make. This easy half circle skirt is perfect for a casual look and great to wear when taking the kids out, so comfortable and “safe”. Being made out of knit it doesn’t need a zipper or a button so it’s so much easier and faster to sew than other skirts.
