Circle Skirt Dress

I don’t quite remember how but I came across this awesome video tutorial by Annika of the Pineneedle Collective and was inspired to make one of my own.

I think I refuse to ride a bike in anything other than a dress.

Sewing Notes

I fudged a bodice out of the Wiksten Tank pattern, used bias facings on the arms and neckline (as per the Wiksten tank) instead of lining it, and I left out the waistband.

The only thing is I regret not staystitching the waist of the skirt. It’s stretched out a little bit.Oh, and I wish I’d done a neater job with the zip. But it was really fun to make.

The End.
