Now your skirt is ready to wear! How wide was your fabric? If I do two semi circles can I use the same pattern and just fold my fabric in half once and do that twice, and then attach them together? When you are done back stitch, leave a little elastic at the end to sew down for extra security.

Aww, thanks so much Deirdre! Circle skirts have the all important twirl factor. Very pretty skirt, Petro and a fab tutorial. Once sewn, your skirt will look like this.
Iron your skirt at this point. Iron the waist seam up toward the top of the skirt so that it is hidden by the waist band when folded and sewn. Overlock or zig zag top of waist band. Pin waist band down matching upper edge of band with seam joining band to skirt. I have shown this from the wrong side but I actually pinned it on the right side as I sewed it on right side to make sure it was neat.
Sew 1 mm in from seam, going slowly along pins. Top stitch along top of waist band - this will give a nice finished look and prevent twisting of elastic inside the casing. Overlock and sew hem. A very small hem only as it is a circle and will pucker if you try to sew a large hem.
Feed elastic through hole and cut and required length to sit firmly around waist. Lay elastic as shown and sew several rows of straight stitch or zig zag. Ease elastic back into waist band and sew opening shut. I made Isabella a skirt too Isabella giving it some serious swirly action! I have never seen Juliette so excited about an outfit as she is about this one for 'Nanpa's birthday'.
