|pretty, but it needs a skirt!|
To cut the basic shape of the skirt, I folded the fabric into eighths, like you would to make paper snowflakes. My fabric wasn't cut square, so I measured the shortest radius length - 27 inches. Then I measured 27" from the center to make a rough sketch of where I should cut. Then I cut out the big circle! (Note: I read online that your tree skirt should be approximately the same diameter as your tree. I hope mine is big enough!)
Next I cut the small center circle using a similar technique. To finish up, I cut a slit in the circle so we'll be able to get the skirt around the tree.
Then I hemmed the raw edges to make them look nice and prevent fraying.
To finish it off, I attached the fur trim. Apparently my either my geometry or measuring skills were off, and I was lacking about 12" in fur. Turns out I didn't account for the 2" width of the fur. I cut an extra 2" off the circle, and it was perfect!
