Minnie Circle Skirt for Little Momo

Momo's latest Disney costume (sort of) is ...Minnie Mouse!

I had just one yard of this Minnie Mouse polka dots in my stash, so I chose to make another twirly skirt for Momo.    This time, I made a circle skirt!

The circle skirt has been on my to-sew list for a while.  I have been avoiding it...because sewing the elastic directly onto the skirt, instead of inserting it into the casing kind of intimidated me.   But I thought it was about time I try it...and I am glad I did!  It was not really that hard!  I followed this famous circle skirt tutorial: Tutorial: The Circle Skirt -MADE

Minnie seems to be dressed in pink polka dots these days, but I like the classic red.  I feel it is more "Minnie!"

I cut the biggest circle I could cut out of the 1 yard I had.  I do not like the skirt to be too short on my daughter, and I think this length is just perfect.

Momo has went through "dresses only" stage and now entered "twirly skirts only" stage.  So she was quite happy to wear this skirt and dress like her pal, Minnie.
Spin, little girl...

...and more spin :)

I am a VERY slow sewer, but this skirt came out fairly quick.  I used rolled hem foot so there was no tedious ironing for the hem.  Now I am going through my stash to see which 1-yard fabric needs to be made into a circle skirt...

Linking up to those fun parties.


  1. I love elastic waistbands with no casing! Looks like you used the thinner, really stretchy kind which is nicer to work with too. It's hard work pleasing opinionated little girls, but you are doing a wonderful job!
    P.S. I need a rolled hem foot!!

  2. Simply adorable!! It is sweet how much she enjoys her new skirt. Blessings, Catherine

  6. It's a great pattern, isn't it, with just the right amount of twirl factor. Looks gorgeous in the red polka dot and I'm with you, red for Minnie.
