Not content with a tea party fundraiser to organize, I also wanted to sew a skirt from scratch for it. I’ve barely any sewing skills so I decided a skirt circle would be easiest. And then I decided to make it a tiny bit more complicated for myself by added a zip, waistband and pleats. Sure why not?!

I loosely followed the instructions from Keeping It Simple, her guide on a circle skirt. Needs to say, due to me being a beginner, I ended up with seams that were not too straight and also a wonky zip. But I loved the results!
As you can see I went for tea pots to go with the tea party theme. I love the skirt, it was fun to wear as you’ll see in the photo below!
I also used some scrap material to make a small bit of bunting.
