DIY metallic circular (skater) skirt

I am super exited to present to you a fun sewing project for your summer vacations; the DIY circular, or skater skirt. I tried to make this pattern the simplest possible so you can make your own skirt in less than an hour. Mine costed 7$ including zipper and thread, that’s crazy cheap for such a fashionable piece right?

Material needed:

-1 meter of midweight fabric
-27 cm zipper
-sewing machine
-sewing material (thread, needles, scissors and measuring tape)

Ari’s tips:

-Take your time when doing the maths, this will make your skirt fit properly and will prevent your from having to start over (like I did because I f*cked my overall length measurement the first time around aha)
-Pin your zipper in place, it will be much easier to sew
-I didn’t finish the bottom hem, if you wish, maybe add 1″ to the overall length (L)

    I live in the UK and I was wondering where is the best place to buy fabric from as I intend on making this skirt.

    Many thanks – Beth x
