With indulging my affinity for vintage style the circle skirt was sure to catch my eye. The fabric artist wannabe in me is thrilled that the skirt is an excellent base for any number of artistic designs; i.e., buttons, trapunto, crochet, fabric manipulation, applique and so on. One of my early attempts of skirtistic art include this one with button embellishment.
It is too bad that I allowed thoughts that being a curvy woman precluded me from wearing these pretty things. Especially when you consider there are several styles:
- Full circle skirt
- Half circle skirt
- Quarter circle skirt
No more! I was encouraged when I read this article Circle Skirts: How to Wear Them. None of the models at the end of the article look like me; but that’s okay. Over the months to come I will make and model plenty of them. Sew stay tuned.
