Flower Circle Skirt


I made this skirt for a wedding, a wedding I unfortunately couldn't attend - I bought a new top and a new matching handbag too - BOO!

I followed the same tutorial and pattern as I did for my previous circle skirt except this time I cut out 5 panels without any strips of fabric as I had enough fabric.

When I tried the skirt on the fabric was so drapey and lovely it showed all the lumps and bumps of my petticoat (from now on I will refer to this as my tutu - I love it!) so I knew I needed a lining but being on a fabric diet (and to be honest I didn't want to spend lots more money on it) I had to be resourceful.

So I attached this new circle skirt to my previous circle skirt at the waist, simply just pulled the elastic out, and sewed the new one to the old one with a long stitch so easy to unpick if I decide I need a black one again!

I was hoping to get some nice pictures at the wedding but as my other half was ill we didn't go :(

I am so sad I didn't get to wear it - hopefully I can wear it soon!

I wish tutu and circle skirts could be worn alllllll the time it feels lovely!

Thanks for reading this short post!
