1905 Circular Skirt

1905 Circular Skirt

Circular skirts were very popular in the mid 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 6" 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. 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.)
