Find two fabrics that you like and cut out all the pieces.
Here are some instructions on that:
-measure your waist and divide that number by 6.28
-fold the fabric in quarters and use the number to draw the radius from the double folded corner.
-decide how long you want your skirt and measure it out from the first radius making sure to leave a seam allowance.
After cutting the circles and waistbands, I sewed the bottom hem of the two large circles together with the right sides facing, and then turned it inside out and sewed the hem. this allows the hem to be neat and beautiful on both sides.
Here is the finished hem
Because this skirt uses two woven fabrics that don’t have much stretch, I put a zipper in, so next step is cut the skirt where i wanted the zipper to go.
Next comes the waist band. using the same method with the main skirt, sew bands together with right sides facing along one of the long edges then flip and resew. this is the top edge of the waist band
There are several methods for attaching a waistband. I pinned the grey side first, right sides together and sewed them then, turned the skirt over and turned the edge under and pinned the print side
Now for the zipper!
this is a somewhat difficult part
I used a reversible double sided zipper. The one I liked was actually for a sleeping bag, so I had to cut it way down!
Fold fabric under and pin the zipper in place
Be careful of the pins and turn the skirt inside out and repeat
