The green skirt in the photo is a ‘half’ circle skirt; a ‘full’ circle skirt, on the other hand, has twice as much fabric and is thus more voluminous.

How much fabric do I need for a full circle skirt?

You will need different widths of fabric depending on the length of the skirt. For a skirt above the knee or one that sits at the knee, I recommend 45-60 inch fabric and 2.5 yards. For a floor length skirt, you will need 60-90 inch fabric and 3 yards.
