Basilica Skirt


Girls will love twirling in this gauzy square circle skirt. This skirt can be made with as many layers of sheer material you desire; it is such a fun ballerina skirt!

Perfect for adventurous beginners, the Basilica Skirt has an elastic waist and a handkerchief hem. This skirt is designed for sheers with an opaque lining. The handkerchief hem points go to the ankle, and the circle lining goes to the knee. The sheer layers are hemmed with ribbon or bias tape. For a faster sew, the overlay layers of the Basilica Skirt can be made with tulle to eliminate much of the hemming required.

The Basilica Skirt is part of Issue 18 of One Thimble, the Australian digital sewing magazine. You can purchase the entire magazine here (affiliate link).
