DIY Skater/circle Skirt in 3 Steps! (No Zipper/no Elastic Band)




Hi guys!!
Today I'm goin to show you how to make this beautiful skirt. As you see in the video is actually reall simple. Some important things:

- Use a fabric that is a little bit stretchy and to sew the waistband use an elastc thread. This way you won't have to use a zipper and the proccess will be easier.
- Always cut less, try it on, and cut more if you need. You know if you cut more than you need, there no turning back.
- In the two diagrams I show you in the video you can see what each line stands for and below that the measurement I actually use.
- There is more than one way to make DIYs, this is just the way I came up with :)

The top I wear is from Bershka.

    I am sorry, but I have to mention - you say cut less first, and if it does not fit, cut more?

    This is NOT how you do the basics of sewing. It is ALWAYS better to overestimate your fabric cuts, because you can always trim it down to fit correctly if it is loose on your first fitting. Cutting less, and discovering that it doesn't fit, is a HUGE waste of fabric and money. Please consider adjusting your instructions so new, beginning sewists can learn correctly!

    From the instructions I took it Taft she meant exactly what you describe: cutting away less of the fabric, leaving room to trim it later.

    This looks amazing! You should make a tutorial on how to sew by hand.
