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

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.
Apologies to apostrophe patterns after creating another skirt pattern the generator does include instructions as a separate downloadable file, which has made making the circle skirt a little easier.
Ive been using pdf patterns now since 2018 but id still class myself as a beginner sewer. I love the idea of this circle skirt generator as it saves me time having to work out the measurements involved to create a circle/half/quarter skirt. However i do think its missing guidelines/suggestions on how to place your pattern pieces onto fabric if you have more than one section and also instructions on how to add elastic to the woven skirt pattern to join it to a knit bodice.
This made my life so much easier when I wanted to do a half circle skirt with a pattern that only came with a full circle. Measurements were perfect. Loved this. Only thing I’d add is a measurement for the bottom of the skirt if i didn’t want to hem but did want to add a band.
This was so simple! It only takes a few measurements and you have the perfect pattern for a circle skirt. You do need to know the width of the item you’re attaching the skirt too (which makes sense) so I started sewing my leggings and then stopped to make the skirt before attaching it all together. Love how I can easily generate a skirt in the future for whatever I need. Genius.
I combined the circle skirt with the yoga waistband calculator and loved the results!
