Craft & Design Yarncraft

After sewing my Emmy dress, the mere thought of hemming a circle skirt—especially one made of satin—is enough to give me nightmares for a week. But, even though it’s a giant pain to evenly hem all of that fabric, there’s still no denying that circle skirts are incredibly flattering and incredibly versatile. So, if you’re feeling brave enough to take on a whole lot of folding, pinning, and stitching, you should check out this awesome circle skirt post from Patty at The Snug Bug, which includes a downloadable circle skirt grading calculator to help you get the right waist-to-circle ratio, whether you’re going for a half, 3/4, or full circle skirt!
