I am a beginner in sewing...
Today, I have decided to stitch a circle skirt..
I surfed online to know the measurements I would need to sew a skirt and got through this circle skirt calculator

In this calculator, input has length of skirt and output also has length of skirt...What is the input length and what is the output length? Please clarify ...

Hey Catherine!

I'm glad you decided to try making a circle skirt! I would advise against the calculator, just measure your waist or hips (wherever the band will be for you) and divide that by 6.28 and that is your radius (waist). You can decide the length by measuring from the top of where you want your skirt to be down to your toes, plus a couple inches for seam allowance.

So my measurements for example would be "33" inch hips and 38 inches long, so I would do 33/6.28 = 5.25. So I would draw my small arc 5.25 inches down the paper, and my next arc 38 inches down from the same spot, cut out the "pattern" and lay it on my (folded) fabric.So I would need a piece of fabric at least 76" by 76." after cutting it looks just like a donut, and you only have to sew on the waistband and hem the bottom.

Hope I explained it well enough, the tutorials I linked in the other thread are really clear and helpful, if you need some more direction!
