Butterfly Wings - Circle Skirt

Butterfly Wings - Circle Skirt

Download the Butterfly Skirt waist cut guide pattern piece here (if you already have the donut skirt waist cut out, you can just use that). 

You can download a LADIES version of it from Pattern Emporium here.

You can attach your butterfly circle skirt to: 

  • Donut Skirt/Mermaid Skirt (free patterns) waistband to create a skirt
  • Spandex Skater Dress bodice to create a racer back, racer front or classic skater dress
  • Sleeved Skater Dress bodice to create a flutter sleeve, mini sleeve, short sleeve or long sleeved skater dress

Choose whether you want to cut the outline of your skirt as a 'circle' skirt or whether you want to follow the guide lines on the wings panel for a shaped hem. 

Circle Skirt Hem

1. Print the donut skirt pattern (free pattern).
Add 2cm height along the straight edge.
Cut around the size 14 hemline (no matter what size you are making). 

 

2. Fold wings panel in half.  I suggest using a few pins around the outline of the wings to help line up front and back evenly. 
Overlay pattern piece and cut hem carefully.

3. Use waist cut pattern piece to cut waist opening.  
Mark side seams and centre front/back on waist. 

 

4. Attach skirt to your BOO! Skater Dress bodice or BOO! Donut Skirt/Mermaid Skirt waistband. 

Shaped Hem

1. Carefully cut around outline of wings.  A subtle outline has been added to your fabric panel which can be used as a cut guide.

2. Fold wings in half aligning hem.
Use waist cut pattern piece to cut waist opening.  
Mark side seams and centre front/back on waist. 

3. Attach skirt to your BOO! Skater Dress bodice or BOO! Donut Skirt/Mermaid Skirt waistband.
