You can use any type of fabric for this tutorial, woven or knit. My example skirt has two layers, but you can do a single layer if you prefer! I’ll show you how to determine how much fabric you need and what to do if your fabric isn’t wide enough to cut the skirt in one seamless piece.
I’ll also show how to do the math the old fashioned way, but if you want you can skip that part and download my FREE circle skirt template here.
Paired with my mini witch hat tutorial, you’re well on your way to a spooktacular DiY Halloween costume!
