i made: a circle skirt
The other week I picked up this beautiful circle table cloth at a little second-hand store. I loved the fabric and wanted to make it into something I could wear. This is a really simple sewing project and one you can do with very little time and resources.
1. Fold the table cloth in half and cut out a semi-circle from the top. This hole will be for your waist. Make sure it is big enough to fit over your head or hips.
2. Cut a piece of elastic that fits around your waist or hips (depending where you want it to sit)
3. Secure the elastic in a circle and then sew that onto the top of your skirt. You will need to stretch the elastic as you sew it so it contracts with the fabric when released.
4. Wear your skirt with pride knowing you made it.
