First I made a really basic skirt--just a hemmed rectangle with an elastic casing for the waist--out of a fantastic fabric, and it is so cute!
|Yay for new skirts!|
|I kept the selvage visible inside the hem, that's how much I love this fabric.|
I got the idea from this reversible circle skirt tutorial from You and Mie, but I didn't want to use bias tape for the hem, so I sewed my two layers together around the HEM and left the waistband open. Then I attached the elastic waistband like in Dana's simple circle skirt tutorial from Made.

One difference though, I added pockets. And because I'm lazy, I used the skirt lining for the back of my pockets rather than cutting two pocket pieces for each side.
|You can sort of see the stitch line where I sewed down the pockets above.|
So I am officially on the circle skirt bandwagon now--I love these, and will be making more! I actually have one planned for my next project RIGHT NOW! Especially now that I've done all of the circle skirt math--gotta put that to use before she grows and I have to figure out a new waist radius!
