Today, I’m sharing this adorable and free printable circle skirt pattern for girls in sizes 3 to 10!
**Update ** (Don’t miss the just posted pattern hack! See it here –>> Fat Quarter Circle skirt. )
My little missy has been saving her pennies for a pair of roller skates for a few months. She had a little photoshoot this past weekend and I told her after the shoot, we would go shopping for skates and I would pay the difference of what she had and the cost of the skates. (Mostly because I didn’t want her ending up with the cheapest pair…)
OH MY GOODNESS! She’s been in roller skate heaven for the past week! Roller skating is all she wants to do. She looked so cute in her little Hello Kitty protective gear and skates, that I was completely inspired to sew her a new little roller skate outfit! (In her new favorite colors of course!)
Roller Skate Skirt Pattern
You will love how easy this skirt is to make!
What makes this style of skirt one of my favorite skirt patterns to make is that the bottom/skirt part is a modified circle skirt, and the waistband/top is a separate yoga-style waistband.
I personally enjoy wearing yoga-style waistbands due to the comfort factor and I think they are even easier to sew than an elastic waistband.
What I mean when I say “modified circle skirt” is that it is a circle skirt made with panels. So not only do you use less fabric, but your options for fabric combinations are endless!
Fabric Suggestions for this Free Circle Skirt Pattern
There are 2 parts to this skirt. The yoga-style waistband and the paneled circle skirt.
The waistband needs to be some sort of cotton/rayon/spandex blend knit fabric that has good stretch and recovery. The exact fabric I used for the waistband in this version is no longer in stock, but this is it in another colorway if you want to check out the fabric description.
(Update – Since writing this post, I did do a pattern-hack version with all quilting cotton fabric. See how I added an elastic waistband instead of yoga-style here.)
For the bottom circle skirt, you can use either woven cotton or knit fabric. You could also choose to use one single fabric and cut the pattern in one piece (as I did in this circle skirt. Just tape together more of the pattern pieces) or sew it together in panels for the look I made.
By sewing the panels together though, you are actually able to get away with using less fabric.
Fit Chart for the Roller Skate Skirt Pattern
Supplies Needed to Make this Skirt:
- Sewing Instructions
- 1/3 yard of rib knit or cotton/rayon/spandex knit with good stretch and recovery for the waistband.(or any stretch fabric that has about a 50% stretch and good recovery)
- Amount of fabric needed for the bottom skirt will vary based on size and fabric width. You could fit the size 10 skirt on 1 yard, if the fabric is 60 inches wide or greater, but anything less wide and you would need close to 1 2/3 to 2 yards
- ballpoint/stretch needle
- iron/spray starch
- basic sewing supplies
