If you’re looking for an easy way to sew a circle skirt, look no further than the Ava Circle Skirt Pattern!

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.   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.

Choose your fabric – something light and flowy for a summer skirt, or a heavier fabric for winter

For summer, you’ll want something light and breezy to keep you from overheating. A beginner friendly circle skirt sewing pattern is a great way to start making a stylish, comfortable garment for the warmer months, such as the Ava Circle Skirt. Lightweight cottons, linens and chambray are ideal for letting the breeze in while also holding their shape. If you want a drapey skirt, then fluid fabrics like a rayon challis are perfect! On the other hand, when fall and winter rolls around and it’s all about staying warm, heavier fabrics like wool, flannel or corduroy can take center stage! These sturdy materials are excellent insulators that ensure you don’t freeze your buns off outside. They also have a bit more structure so they can change the way your skirt drapes. No matter what season it is, pick out something that suits your needs and get to sewing!

Sew the side seams of your skirt together

Sewing a circle skirt is definitely not as easy as sewing a straight line, but it is pretty darn close! When it comes to sewing the side seams of your skirt together, is deciding how to finish those seams. Will it be lined? Will you do French seams? Will you overlock (serge) the seams? If you want your seam to look crisp and professionally done, be sure to use pins and guides when sewing the side seams and be sure to press and never skip the under stitching in the instructions. After all, sloppy sewing will only lead to an unpleasant outcome that would require you to start all over – so take your time and make sure you get it right the first time!

Hem the bottom of your skirt to the desired length

Hem hem hem…I think I am getting hemmed out! All jokes aside, hemming a skirt can be an intimidating task for many, and that is with a straight hem. Circle skirts have a curved hem so it can be a bit fiddly if you are new. Don’t worry, it isn’t rocket science -just take your time and do the PREP work. Before even beginning to tackle the hem, be sure to let the garment hang for at least 24 hours. This is because the hemline is cut on the bias and it will stretch (it has happened to me before – when I finished a dress the night before a wedding. The next morning my dress (with ruffled hem) was an asymmetrical dress. I made it work, but learned from my mistake). When hemming a circle skirt, make sure to start at the center and work your way outward in small sections. You will need extra patience if you are hemming larger skirts with heavier fabric. So go ahead, roll up those sleeves, grab that hem gauge and don’t forget to thread the needle! Do not try and and hem more than 1/2″ for a circle skirt and a better rule of thumb is 1/4″. The reason for this is that the fabric at the bottom is larger than the fabric you are folding it to and it can pucker if the hem is too wide. Keep this in mind when you trim your skirt after letting it hang overnight. With enough practice and care you will have hemmed your very own perfect circular skirt.
