Easiest skirt in history! You need 42"x42" fabric and enough 1" or 2" elastic  to go around your waist.

1. CUT

Fold the fabric in 4 and cut a nice curve. To cut the inside curve, use this chart.

2. HEM

Roll the end of the fabric over your finger and stitch.


Cut the elastic to the width of your waist. Stitch ends together to create a loop. use pins to help line it up with your fabric


Stitch the elastic to the fabric and… you’re already done!


This has been planned for ages and it’s finally done! A tutorial that goes through the process of making and drafting a simple circle skirt. I hope it’s helpful for those who asked about it!

If you have any questions about making a circle skirt, or want to make your own from another fabric, I’ve posted 2 excellent resources below:

DIY Full Circle Foolproof Skirt Tutorial from By Hand London. There are calculations for full, half and quarter circle skirts.


I’m going to call this my Pinkie Pie cosplay 1.0 because there are a few things I want to improve on but I did when 1st place (13+ group) in the costume contest as Canterlot Botanical Gardens so I’m not complaining much.

I made my dress. ears, hair bow, bloomers (not shown), and white skirt.  I curled my wig, painted my shoes, and painted the cutie marks on my dress.


I really wanted to do a video version of my DIY circle skirt tutorial, so here it is!  When I can’t be bothered to add a zip to a circle skirt - it can add up to an hour to a project - I use this no-zip method with some stretchy fabric instead.
Stretchy fabrics include lycra, jersey knits and spandex if you’re on the lookout for some in a fabric store. I will also upload a version on non-stretchy materials and adding zips soon.
