Black Half Circle Skirt

Hi everyone! Just quickly, sorry for the poses. I guess you can tell I don't do ballet. It's like a warped version of the YMCA. However, the best pics of the skirt were the ones with me doing stupid stuff with my hands so these are the ones you get to see! My teeth also look funny in these photos. This would be because I got braces on Monday so adieu to all of my favourite foods for an entire year. But it's okay, because it's worth it for the end result.
 Anway, onto the actual sewing stuff... This skirt is a self drafted half circle skirt, with the measurements calculated by the By Hand London App. For the waistband I cut a rectangle the length of the top of the skirt and overlocked that raw edges together, then turned right side out and top-stitched. It's secured with an invisible zip and hemmed by machine 2 inches from the edge because I do not have the time to hand sew it and the machine stitching is invisible on the black anyway. The fabric is cotton poplin. 
The drape of circle skirts just make me feel all fuzzy inside. And now for twirly photos.
 This was a great basic to make as it goes with practically everything and was sorely needed in my wardrobe in time for Me Made May. I'd like to knock up another in navy to go with the other stuff in my wardrobe sometime soon.

Until next time, thank you very much for reading!
Thanks Ed for taking the photos!

  2. Looks great! I have a black half circle skirt (the Sewaholic Hollyburn) and I wear it with everything. They're so versatile!

  3. Awww! You look adorable or your outfit. Haha! Looks like you had a lot of fun with your black half circle skirt. Anyway, I don't think your teeth look funny in any of the photos. You shouldn't worry about not eating your favorite foods either. You'll get accustomed to having braces soon and you should be back to eating your favorites again! :)
