Sew Your Own Vionnet-Inspired Circle Skirt

French designer Madeleine Vionnet (1876–1975) was a purist. To her, the best designs incorporated four principles: proportion, movement, balance, and truth. This example is more complex than a basic circle skirt, and it will call on your geometry and algebra skills. Don’t let that hold you back, though: The extra effort is repaid in a truly stunning skirt that flows unlike any other. Opt for super drapey fabric, such as silk charmeuse or even breezy rayon.

This pattern is actually for a dress, with a fitted T-shirt-style bodice and skater skirt, joined at the waistline seam. Make it in stretch knits with some spandex for recovery, and wear it year-round, with leggings, tights, boots, Converse kicks, or sandals. It’s an excellent choice for newer sewists and those just getting into sewing with knits. There are eight sizes included in the pattern, ranging from high bust 30 inches to 44 inches, and waist 24 inches to 38 inches.
