  4. Great tutorial! Thanks for taking the time to share your expertise. As far as making the skirt in non-stretch fabric (knit, faux leather) is stay stitching necessary?

    1. it is always a good practice to stay stitch on any curves like waistlines, necklines, armholes etc. even on woven non stretch fabrics.

  7. think you are very talented! Awesome tutorial!
    A. My measurements are similar to yours, with that length skirt how much fabric do I need? I'm thinking 2 yrds.
    B. I am a super novice at sewing, you lost me at the zipper install. Can I do this withan elastic band. Im using real leather as my fabric (But I'm doing a trial one in muslin)

  14. Hi Mimi,
    I have bought all of your tutorials, i love this one, just one question how many inches is the waistband in length?

  15. Haven't watched the video yet but thanks in advance LOL! I have read many tutorials on circle skirts but none of them have been 100% accurate. Looking forward to seeing your take and anxiously awaiting Kelly's version. She's always the first to complete one of your tutorials. ;-)

  18. Second AJ's comment! If you have some tips or could point us in the direction of books/pins that can help with fit issues that would be great!

  19. I would love to make is a bit longer. Do you think 3.5 yards would bring it to just above my knees?

  20. Hi Mimi! Thanks for this tutorial. I tried to make a circle skirt with some crazy equations once. All I kept thinking is that you shouldn't need to be a mathematician to make a skirt. After all my effort, it was huge and ended up in the garbage. I haven't done another one since, but I'm going to try your method.

  22. I've been sewing since I was a teenager and yet I've never made a circle skirt before, out of fear of the pesky math. Your tutorial is so clear and makes it SO easy--I cut out my skirt in five minutes and can't wait to finish it tonight (I'm not sleeping until it's DONE). Thank you!
