Skater Skirt (DIY)

How do you wear a skater skirt?
Choose a turtleneck and ankle boots with a T-shirt for a more modest look, or lace-up boots with a T-shirt. Pair your skater mini skirt with a lace blouse in bright colors, and finish with fancy, feminine heels. You can also add more female niceties like florals, a tie front, or ruffles.
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.

What fabric is best for a circle skirt?
Cotton, like most skirts, is a good choice for circle skirts, but satin, which is a difficult material to work with if you’re just learning to sew, works well for full circle skirts like those seen in the 1950s.
