1905 Circular Skirt Sewing Pattern
1905 Circular Skirt Sewing Pattern by Truly Victorian
Circular skirts were very popular in 1904-1907, when very full, straight skirts were the most stylish. Known as a circular skirt in two parts, there is a seam at both center front, and center back. The back is fitted, in habit style, with a sweep. The closure is in the center back. With the seams cut bias, this skirt is especially suited to stripes and plaids, which form a chevron effect at center front and center back. An optional band of fabric can be added to the skirt to simulate a pointed tunic.
This skirt requires 54" wide fabric, or wider. This skirt can also be cut cross-grain with the center front on a fold, which will require 60" wide fabric for skirt lengths over 41" long (front length).
This is a heavy paper pattern with 6 pieces on 2 sheets. The sewing instructions seem easy to follow, and are lightly illustrated. There is also a short article on the "Edwardian Silhouette".
Multi-sized pattern includes waist sizes 20-46 and hip sizes 30-56 all in one package. Please see back cover photo for sizing chart, fabric and notion requirements.
