  • How to make a circle skirt. Buggy Skirt - Step 1
    Step 1

    So first you measure your waist where you want the skirt to sit. Divide that number by two. Measure that out on the fold of your fabric. Cut it out that length by double the width you want your waistband to be. Mine was 10 then when I folded it in half became 5. Cut on the fold to create two pieces. Pin them together at the short sides.

    Lay your fabric down and cut down the center fold. Decide how long you want your skirt to be and cut it as desired. I left mine the lenght of the half of the fabric. Set the rest aside for another project, decorations, ect.

    Its time to bust out the iron. Make the bottom hem. Iron and pin down then sew. Then sew the waistband pieces together. I opened the flaps and sewed them down. Then fold the whole thing in half, long ways and iron.

    Step 5

    Ruffle or pleat the skirt fabric so that its the same length as your waistband and pin. I did this by pinning each end of the waistband to the end of my skirt fabric then pleating the middle at random. Not the most precise way of doing it but thats how I do it.
