DIY Ankara High Low Circle Skirt

Hello Beaut's,

Below is a beautiful Ankara circle skirt that I made just in time for my birthday... unfortunately, it was entirely too cold to wear out! lol

I created this skirt with Ankara Fabric found here

Making a circle skirt is fairly easy.  There are many tutorials you can find on youtube and therefore, I didnt feel the need to create yet another!

For the back piece I cut (on the fold) a length of 42 inches and 1/4 of my waist which was 7 plus 1/2 inch = 7.5 inches.

For the front piece, I cut my shirt on the fold for the length I wanted (17" inches) at the fold and 30 inches at the side seam creating a high now effect as per below (remembering to cut the same 7.5 inches for the waist).
After which I created my waistband (7 inches folded in half) and sewn my pieces together placing my side seam and my waistband seam together.  the last thing to do is insert a zipper, I inserted a 9 inch zipper on the other side seam.

What do you think?



  1. love love love that skirt

  3. Hi! I know that this question is late, but how do you hem this? Considering you have the curved bottom of the front butting against the straight edge of the back. Thanks!
