Butterflies and Music Circle Skirt

It’s been a while since I’ve done any sewing. Finally the sewing machine has been dragged out of its corner; for a bit of making. Which all started when I rediscovered this fabric I had, with a pretty butterflies and music note print

This is just a sharing post really, as I had a sewing day fairly recently, and made another circle skirt! As a music lover, I spotted this pretty fabric with music notes and bright coloured butterflies and had to buy it!

I didn’t know what I would make with it at the time, and so it sat in my stash for a while, (we’ve all been there!) Eventually I decided to cut out the pieces to make a second circle skirt.

Love butterflies? Check out this pretty butterfly card I made.

Using almost the same method as I used making the skirt in this post I made a second circle skirt using the tutorial.

This skirt had one slight difference; in that I had to make the skirt with two semi-circles because of the nature of the print. So instead of cutting out one continuous circle; two half circles are stitched together with a side seam.

I had no hope when it came to pattern matching, but the print on the fabric is very forgiving! I absolutely adored this fabric when I saw it! If I recall correctly; I bought it about a year ago. It was around Christmas I originally decided to make another skirt; but clearly I’d given up after that! When I came back to it recently; the pieces were already cut and all I had to do was sew it all together!

Circle Skirts

Circle skirts are great beginner sewing projects, but also an easy make even if you have more sewing experience, as they are a versatile addition to any wardrobe, and can be made with pretty much any fabric you like!

You can make a circle skirt, in different lengths, with layers, with any patterns. You can even add a front panel and some straps to make a pinafore dress, and if you don’t want elastic, it is simple enough to sew a flat waistband and add a zip into the back or side, of course you would need to decide this when sewing your side seams, or cut a side or back seam into your fabric if necessary.
