I added the plain blue satin material to the bottom of the skirt as I miscalculated the measurements and only bough fabric that was 45" wide and so the skirt was incredibly short. I think it worked out pretty well with the plain colour at the bottom though but being a satin like material it was pretty slippery to sew and it frays like billy-o. I was rushing to get the skirt finished in time for our weekend away so not all the seams are finished to a standard i'm completely happy with but I will got back and tidy it up before I wear it again.
Lincraft. The teal colour oriental brocade was (I believe) $14.99 a meter and the teal party satin was $6.99 a meter. As for the pattern I followed the tutorial on Fickle Sense and used the handy calculator available at The Snugbug for working out the measurements. I made a full circle skirt but next time I think i'll opt for a half circle as the extra fabric in a full circle is quite bulky (and warm) and I think the half will be more flattering for my figure.
Although I'm not completely happy with the skirt (mostly due to my lack of sewing ability) I am pretty proud of myself so actually finishing a circle skirt and it is a good start to my resolution to sew one item of clothing a month. I confident by the end of the year I'll be sewing these things up like a pro!
