Where is the circle skirt pattern?

To sew a circle skirt, you do not need to buy a specific pattern. You can draw a pattern of any circle skirt type completely yourself based on your body measurements . This way the skirt will fit perfectly. To get all the information you need to draw the pattern, please use the pattern calculator below.

Use of seam and hem allowances

Please keep in mind, that the calculated results do NOT include side seam allowances, waist seam allowance or hem allowance. This way you can easily change your mind when it comes to seam allowances. You just add them before cutting the pattern pieces out of fabric and can adjust them at the last-minute.

There is one exception; the only case where the side seam allowances are included in the circle skirt calculator is the double circle skirt. However, do not forget to add the seam allowances at waist and hem.





* Seam allowance is used to calculate fabric consumption and double circle skirt pattern.
* Hem allowance is used to calculate fabric consumption.
