Me Made: Metallic Silver Skater Skirt

One of the fabrics I thrifted last week was a gorgeous liquid-like silver sweater knit. It was a little under two yards, so I decided to make a circle skirt. I LOVE circle skirts. They are super easy and quick to make and so flattering.

I cut the skirt in a full circle and cute the sides longer than the front and the back. Then I cut a simple waistband, sewed it to the skirt, and inserted elastic. Just simple and quick.

I hemmed the skirt with my serger and did a wide rolled edge hem. This is the first time in four years that I've done a rolled edge on my serger and not had the thread break! I was so happy that it worked without me fiddling with the tension. Hopefully, it will keep working for me.

Whenever I wear circle skirts I feel like I'm an amazing dancer. I want to dance through the day and point my toes.

  1. Gorgeous! I had my sister give me some blush chiffon type fabric. I want to layer it into a circle skirt, so do a couple of layers with a lining under it. It looks so romantic in my head. Pretty sure it will be a flop in real life. Which makes me scared to cut into the beautiful fabric.
    I love how this skirt turned out! Go

  2. I love this! Did you take a pic of the settings you used on your serger for your rolled hem? I've only done the rolled hem once and my thread broke many times....ack!
