|I muse upon circle skirts...|
When Casey announced her Circle Skirt Sew-Along, I was very excited, because I love the blank canvas of a circle skirt. Plus ever since Patty created her Circle Skirt Calculator, I've been plotting to add circle skirts to my wardrobe, so Casey was just adding to my motivation.

Unfortunately, I cut out my last gore overlapping where I cut out the waist on my third gore, making it appear to have a butchered scalloped edge. So it became a three-gore 3/4 circle skirt. So it goes.
Honestly I love the way it hangs. I finished the waist with bias tape cut from the same fabric and used an invisible zipper in center back following the great tutorial on the Coletterie. I absolutely love how a shirt looks tucked into this non-waistband finish. I have been so in love with belts and wide waistbands lately, I was surprised at how flattering this looks.
I finished with a simple rolled hem pressed 1/4", and then rolled another 1/4" and sewn once. My skirt is still plenty swingy as you can see.
So in recap here are the 3 circle skirts in my Fall Palette Wardrobe...
|3/4 circle cut in gores!|
|Full circle (fully lined in medium weight cotton)|
|But here is the true bliss of the circle skirt, no?|
