Full Circle Skirt: Basic Black

A while back I made this simple circle skirt using my circle skirt calculations. This was the full circle version. I actually made it a while ago, but made a mistake with the waist.... so it sat in  my 'to-do-list' for a while. You can see that I wore it back in 2011 here down South in Western Australia. 

Once having fixed the waist I started wearing the skirt with jumpers that I had bought from the online secondhand clothing community Kleider Kreisel, which in English translates to Clothing Circle. I am obsessed with finding interesting jumpers on their site. This navy blue jumper was my first purchase. Since then I have found interesting jumpers with crazy patterns and colours. I will have to give you updates with regards to my secondhand jumper collection!

And I will be starting 'i give 2 hoots' up again this year, so I will be discussing the concept of 'online secondhand shopping' on my sustainable fashion blog throughout the year. Contact me if you want to be apart of the community!

I know that circle skirts are not so much in vogue anymore, but am going to start experimenting with the concept and come up with alternative circle skirt styles.  Keep posted and come and visit me at 'I give 2 hoots'.


  1. Thanks for mentioning i give two hoots...I've just had a quick look and am very intrigued. I've been transitioning from purchasing my clothing from thrift stores to sewing. I used to sew all the time. Every so often I get lucky and find great fabric from thrift stores to sew, but most often I'm purchasing everything new for my garments. I have been contemplating how 'eco' this is. Hopefully your other website will help me out!

    Love your skirt by the way...

  2. Woohoo! Back into the circles skirts! These photos are awesome.
