I think I’ve decided on a Christmas outfit; a velvet circle skirt! I found this website that tells you what size fabric and how much to purchase! It allows you to measure in inches or centimetres, choose the fullness and length of your skirt, and all you have to do is measure your waist! You have to draft your own pattern, of course, but it tells you your radius, includes seam and hem allowance in the provided measurements, and how to place the pattern on the fabric.

Anyway, the first photo is my inspiration [source]. I haven’t chosen the colour (perhaps a grey or black), but I’ve calculated the cost of the project and with my coupons, for a yard of fabric and a zipper, I’ll spend no more than $4. $4 for a skirt! Talk about a deal.

I’ll blog the process.
