How many circle skirts do you have in your wardrobe? If you have only one or- gasp!- none, it’s time to start sewing them!

As I showed last year in my tutorial on how to sew a circle skirt (with free pattern!), it’s actually very easy to sew them and they are so much fun to wear and twirl in! There’s just one little problem with sewing circle skirts: hemming them.

A circle skirt is quite literally a skirt made from a circle of fabric, which means that the entire hem is one very long and continuous curve. And, while hemming a straight edge is really easy, especially with my special hemming trick, hemming a circle is a bit different. And time-consuming.

Luckily there is a super easy way to hem a circle skirt, a way to get around this problem with no measuring.

Yes. You read correctly. NO MEASURING.

Normally you can’t even see this special hemming trick because it’s hidden on the inside of the garment. But if you get a little carried away twirling in your super fun circle skirt, you might catch a glimpse of it.

BIAS TAPE! Not only does it save many headaches when hemming curved edges, but it’s such a pretty detail on your garment!

And because you don’t have to keep on measuring, ironing and pinning, measuring, ironing and pinning over and over, it’s actually incredibly fast! In fact, if you already have single fold bias tape ready, it’ll only take you about 15 minutes or so to do! Wow!

So, are you ready for the life-changing trick?! Let me show you the easy way to hem a circle skirt!

Everyone loves a bright and happy homemade costume, especially if it’s covered in flowers! The new Field of Flowers costume has body, hat and neck piece in 11 sizes, so everyone in the family can dress up!

Back in 2008, when my daughter was two years old, my husband had the idea to dress her up for Carnival as a bunch of flowers or some other type of flower costume. So I came up with an extremely simple costume which was just a green rectangle with a slit cut in the center for the head with fleece flowers sewn on. It didn’t seem like quite enough, so I made up a hat  and a neck tie with leaves, too.

It wasn’t exactly high class sewing and had a huge amount of technical issues, but we always loved it. Sofia wore it on many costume-wearing occasions and both she and her brother periodically put it on still, even if it’s way too small for both of them.

Ever since I started my pattern shop in 2014 I’d wanted to create a real pattern for this costume, but more finished and with better technique. And because this costume is just so much fun, I made adult sizes, too! Man, I hadn’t worn a costume in years!
