I just finished a muslin version of the half-circle skirt for DD. (Took forever for a simple skirt due to "life, etc.") Don't wait for a photo unless I hold a gun to DD.
Also, the fabric was a bit of left over black crepe, so you wouldn't see much.
This is a wonderful pattern...I thought it was a bit stupid to pay money for a circle skirt pattern...but this is very nice! It fits closely through the hips then flares at the hem. Very flattering. Swing-y but doesn't make you look like you're wearing a 50s poodle skirt.
The only instructions that come with the skirt is the fabric requirement: 1.5 meters. I had exactly 1.49 meters. When I laid it out, I thought "no way!, I really need 2 meters for this." But, because of PP's note I had a bit of a think, and figured out how to do it...(no pattern layout included)...and you can
get this out of 1.5 meters. Exactly! No waste cutting
. Don't change the length! The length is clever...it uses the fabric very efficiently and would give a knee to calf length skirt on anyone from circa 5ft8 to 5ft. The hem allowance is included...you have to figure that out yourself, too.
Pattern paper, too, is super nice. I had the pattern laid out on the floor and wet dog thought it was her bed. This is solid paper...it survived the dog!
