Full Skirt Tutorial by Kapalaka Full Skirt Tutorial by Kapalaka
Architecture major here, but I love to sew! A few of my friends were struggling in finding a good pattern, so I made this to help out. I think it's pretty easy, and I hope you all find this easy to follow. Let me know if you have questions or think I should add something in!

If you would like to see the Gwendolyn black skirt I made using this method, check out my results here!

My fabrics width isn't long enough to support my desired skirt length- is there a way to still use a circle skirt?

Hi peachtier! Yes, there is, though you would have more seams in it. You could try doing a gored skirt, in which you would make your pattern out of paper first, then you would fold it up the donut into quarts or fifths, whatever would look best to you. Kind of like slicing a pizza pie. You would then use each slice of the pizza as a piece of your skirt and sew that fabric up together again to get the fullness.

Here is an example image of what the finished product would look similar to.
