The square circle skirt is quite popular. The tutorial for it is all over the sewing/ crafting websites. But I couldn't find any tutorial for it in instructables, so I thought of taking the opportunity! I never thought that sewing skirt could be sooo easy and fun! I'm a beginner in sewing but still I find this skirt sewing ultra easy! You don't need much, only 6 materials and you'e ready to go.

Don't wait, make one funky square skirt right away :D

Step 1: Materials needed

Picture of Materials needed
To make this skirt you'll need:

1) Cotton fabric - 1 yard, for the bottom layer,
2) Net fabric - 1 yard, for the top layer,
3) Elastic,
4) Matching thread,
5) Sewing machine,
6) Pins,
7) Scissor.

The skirt I made is short, if you want it to be longer you'll need to use more than 1 yard. But I think it looks cute if it's short and even cuter if you wear it with leggings.

Step 2: Designing

I'm not very good in designing dresses. But I tried to draw what I wanted to make, though it didn't turn out to be anything like the skirt I made! 

Step 3: Cutting the layers

Take the cotton fabric, make sure its length is equal from all sides.
Now, fold it into half, and then fold again (into half).
As you need to cut a circle right in the middle of each square fabrics, you'll need to sort out the radius of the circle.

Here's how you do it: Measure the waist and add 3-4 inches, then divide the total number by 6.28 to get the radius.

Now. use a compass to mark a line for the circle from the closed corner of the folded fabric. Use a chalk to mark the circle line.
Then. cut the fabric at the line.
Fold the net fabric twice, similarly. Now use the previous cut out round piece to cut another circle from the net fabric.

Hi! This skirt is super cute! I'm wanting to make it but I wasn't sure if you used 45" or 60" fabric for it. Just curious. Thanks so much! This is a great tutorial. :)

Thanks! I'm not quite sure, it was probably 45''. Post a picture of the final product, I'd love to see it.
