DIY Floral Skirt


Stuff you need:
Zipper
2m of floral linen
Sewing machine


1. Measure you waist and calculate the radius of that (correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure that is your waist length/2pi). Fold your fabric in half horizontally and then again vertically as can be seen below. The quarter-circle labeled w needs to have the radius of your waist. L should be length you would like your skirt to be + seam allowance. Cut along these 2 lines, once you open it all up it should look like a large donut.


2. Next cut a slit to open up the donut. Seam both the outer and inner circles.


3. Fold over the open edges and seam them up.


4. Bring the 2 edges together place the zipper face down on top, mark where it ends. Making sure both edges are touching and fronts of either side are facing each other sew from the bottom of the skirt up till the mark. Then attach the zipper


Perfectly beautiful and ready to wear!
