Ava Circle Skirt Sew Along

The Ava Circle Skirt is one of those wardrobe staples you keep reaching for.  The classic full circle skirt is set at a midi length (below the knee) but can easily be hacked to mini and maxi versions with every iteration in between.

This skirt sewing pattern comes in a wide range of sizes including 18" doll, infants, kids and our regular women's Missy and Curvy line.

 

This circle skirt pattern is drafted to fall at a midi length, just below your knees, but can easily be hacked into longer and shorter variations of the pattern to get the style you are after.  

 

This skirt is made with woven fabric with a light to medium weight, depending on the amount of drape you are looking for.  Below, are versions made with medium weight quilting cotton giving a crisp drape, contrasting to the lightweight suiting used in the women's version in the photo above.  

You can finish your skirt with a simple narrow hem, or opt for a peek a colour using bias binding to finish the hem of your circle skirt.

Personally, the bias binding hem is one of my favourite ways to finish this skirt, especially on the children's version, as when they twirl, you get a peek of the trim.

We have also designed this circle skirt pattern to have two waistband options, one narrow waistband and one wider one, so that you can change up the look.

This pattern can also be mashed up to any bodice pattern you have, as it is designed to fit your natural waistline - making the #AvaCircleSkirtHacks a lot of fun!

One thing to remember whenever you make a circle skirt, is that a large portion of the skirt is cut on the bias, meaning you need to ensure you allow your skirt to hang, for at least 24 hours prior to hemming to ensure your hem is straight.  

We love to see your makes, if you make this don't forget to tag us on Instagram @SheerStitchery and use #AvaCircleSkirt
