DIY Circle Skirt with enclosed elastic waistband. Any age + Any size. Easy!
CIRCLE SKIRT MATH
Radius for your Waist circle =
(Waist measurement + 2-5 inches) ÷ 6.28
Hip measurement ÷ 6.28
• For kids, I would go with the waist measurement. The extra 2-5 inches depends on how gathered you’d like the waistband to be.
• For adults, I would go with the hip measurement. Or try the waist measurement + 2 inches. It’s a bit of trial and error since everyone has a different hip/waist ratio.
WAISTBAND PIECE at 3:39
Cut a strip of fabric 3.25″ x (the circumference of your waist circle + 4 inches or so)
Basically, measure around your waist circle (the donut hole in your skirt) and then add some extra inches. You’ll see in the video that we just need a tail of fabric. Once we pin the waistband to the skirt, we’ll trim off the excess.
Circle skirts are so fun to make and wear!
If your fabric is not wide enough to make a full circle (typically for adults), You can cut two half circles, and sew them together with a side seam. This also makes it fun for adding pockets! See my video link for that below.
