Add a Circle Skirt to Anything
Circle skirts make everything better. Add a circle skirt to everything! To a dress, to a pair of skorts, to a swimsuit, to an old t-shirt. But how to get the perfect fit, when there are so many factors at play? There are many different fabric combinations and size dimensions to consider. Remove the guesswork by using this calculator.
Every sewing pattern from Apostrophe Patterns is created to fit perfectly. No grading between sizes required. How is this done? Well, first we take your measurements. Then, we find out what kind of fabric you are using and what sewing preferences you have. Then, we take all this information and draw out a pattern which fits you perfectly. All this is done automatically in a matter of seconds using the Pattern Generator.
- Fabric: knit or woven, or a combination of both
- Sewing Level: beginner
- Waist sizes: all of them!
- Lengths: any length!
- Seam allowance and hem width: you get to choose!
- You may choose to cut your circle skirt from 1 to 10 equal pieces of fabric
Note: This is not a listing for a completed garment. You will receive access to a web page which allows you to generate sewing patterns in PDF form.
This is a GREAT way to calculate the way to cut a full circle. Best thing is that it tells you what size fabric you will need to cut it in the length and number of sections you specify. That allows you to change the options until it fits in the size of the fabric that you have. The only way to improve on this would be if it also could calculate for different fractions of a circle--3/4, half, 1/4, etc.
This pattern is absolutely amazing! I was so hesitant to add a circle skirt on to dresses because I didn't know how to figure out how to cut one out. I seriously had read blogs for over a year, but just wasn't clear on what to do. Apostrophe patterns has an amazing generator to give you a pattern based on your measurements, even complete with your seam allowance preference and hem preference (and they give recommendations if you need one)! I just LOVE the circle skirt and love this generator so much!! A definite need for anyone who sews shirts or dresses!
A lot of hard work has gone into making it perfect. Great job!
How many tips and vests has my little one grown out of and it gave them away! Now I can add a skirt to them and get extra wear.
Perfect measurements and results every time.
What a handy calculator for figuring out elastic length. I can do a test for each type of elastic. Since I bought huge rolls in bulk, it will save me lots of time later when I'm sewing each project!
