Circle skirts have been around for many years so when I started making this skirt pattern I decided that there needed to be a few key features that made it stand apart from the rest.  The three key features that make this pattern a bit different are:

1. Suggested Fabric

I recommend that the fabric it needs to be sewn in is 4 way 50% Stretch Knit with a good recovery.  One of the downsides of sewing gorgeous circle skirts is that the hems drop and become uneven.  In woven fabrics, you need to let them hang, then you trim away the uneven amounts making them level again.  The great aspect of making the skirt out the above mentioned fabric is that you will avoid the need to sit and level your hems, as they do not drop and become uneven.

2. Pockets
If you love pockets, you will love the pockets in this skirt.  They are nice and deep and easy to install.

3. The Waist Tie

This is my most favourite feature of this skirt.  I believe it gives a touch of class and elegance to the skirt.  Plus it can be tied in quite a few ways to give your skirt a fresh look each time your wear it.
