Circle skirts are fun to wear and fun to sew. I thought would play around with changing up the hemlines on the basic circle skirt with some soft, drapey fabric I recently purchased. I did a hi/low hemline and an asymmetrical hemline, and I rather liked them both!
I used black elastic for the waist, and lined them with a short underskirt. The fabric is thin, with a lovely drape, which is exactly what you want for a circle skirt. You don't want to add any unnecessary bulk to the hips with thick fabric.
Unfold the skirt.
Start cutting one side as short as you want the short part to be and slope it down to meet the long part of the skirt. You want the slope to end about halfway around the skirt.
For the asymmetrical hemline, leave the skirt folded and do the same thing.
Check out this tutorial if you need help putting on an elastic waist with an underskirt. This is such a simple way to take a classic cut, and make it a bit more modern.
These skirts are available in either color in my Etsy shop.
