Welcome to this new pattern making class, in today’s class I am going to teach you how to make circle skirts.
Today you will learn how to make the full circle, three-quarter circle, half circle and quarter circle skirts.
To make these skirts we are going to have to do a simple calulation related to the number pi (𝛑).
We have to use the number pi (𝛑) because it helps us to find the ratio of a circle’s circumference but don’t worry, in class I am not going to bore you with theory.
But what you have to know is that this skirt patterns are based on circles so that is the reason behind why we do this maths.
For this class, the only measure that we are going to use is the waist and you can add the ease if you think it is convenient or you can add the seam allowances directly.
In the extra material section, I have added the mathematical formulas, to make it easier for you to follow this class.
This is the first class that I have added references points, I personally am not a big fan of them but I think it will help you understand the class better.
For this class, I have decided to make a skirt of 30 cm long so that you save paper when making it but you can change the length to the one of your choices.
As I explain in the class, the flare of the skirt will depend on several factors, including the thickness of the fabric, but here are some pictures of the four skirts to give you an idea of the final result.
if you have any questions you can send me an email through your user account in the support section.

As you already know, the best way to learn is by doing yourself, so for this class I am going to ask you to make the 4 patterns of these skirts and industrialize them.
Remember that industrializing means putting all the seam allowances, grain lines and all the necessary information.
