You may need to trim more or less fabric off of some areas to create a nice circular shape. You will be hemming the bottom edges, which will cover up any minor imperfections.
Check the width of the waistband. Unfold the fabric once so that is it just folded in half. Then unfold your fitted skirt and hold the waistband of it up against the waist of your circle skirt. This will help you to determine if the waist is the correct size. Measure fabric for the waistband. Next, take the fabric that you set aside for your waistband and place it next to the waist of your skirt. You should have two strips on top of each other with the patterns facing each other if the fabric has a pattern.
Place the strips near the waist and cut the edges of the strip so that you will have enough to hem the waistband. Sew the waistband pieces. Take your waistband pieces and make sure that they are lined up. If the fabric has a pattern, it should still be facing in.
Take your two waistband pieces and sew them together along the short edges. Then, hem the long edges by folding about a half inch of the fabric over and sewing along the edge of this fabric. You do not need to use any elastic for the waistband since you are using stretch fabric. Pin the waistband to your circle skirt.
Open up your circle skirt and lay it out on your table or floor. Then take your waistband and start pinning it onto the waist of your circle skirt. As you pin on the waistband, make sure that the print side of your waistband faces the print side of your circle skirt. Start by pinning one edge to the circle skirt and then pin the opposite edge. Then, pin the part of the waistband that is halfway between the two pins you just placed.
Then, pin the part of the waistband across from that pin. Keep pinning in the way to ensure an even distribution of the waistband. Attach the waistband to your circle skirt. After your waistband is pinned to your circle skirt, start sewing along the edge of your waistband and circle skirt waist with a zig-zag stitch. Remove the pins as you go. After you are done, just flip the waistband fabric over and tuck it into the waist when you wear it. Fold over the edges of the skirt bottom.
Before you hem the skirt, you will need to fold the edges over. Create the fold about a half inch away from the edge of the skirt bottom all the way around. You can pin the edges if you want to be sure that the hem will be even or you can just fold the edges as you go. Fold along the baste stitch as if it is a perforated line. Then, you can either remove the baste stitch or fold over the edge again and sew.
Then, fold over the ribbon and sew again. The ribbon can also help to provide some structure and added body to your circle skirt. Sew the hem using a regular stitch. Make sure that the edges are even all around the skirt. If you are worried about making a mistake, then you can always start with a basting stitch and then go over it with a regular stitch when you are happy with the results.
Go slow and try to be patient. Try ironing the edge before you sew. You can also iron the hem edge flat before you sew it in place.
This may reduce the chances of puckering material or uneven spots. Trim off excess thread and wear your skirt. After you finish the hem, trim away and loose excess threads along your hem and waistband.
Now your skirt is ready to wear! You can wear a circle skirt lots of different ways, so have fun experimenting.

You can use a length of elastic instead.
Not Helpful 9 Helpful No, you can use non-stretchy material too. Just add a zip at the side or at the back for easy wearing. Not Helpful 17 Helpful Since you make it to your size and you are supposed to use stretchy fabric, the skirt should just slip on with a bit of stretch and it won't fall down because your hips are wider than your waist and the fabric clings. Of course, that doesn't stop you from adding a zipper, clasps, hooks or whatever else you need for the sake of reassurance.
Not Helpful 11 Helpful Measure the circumference of your waist and then measure how far down you want the skirt to come.
That will be the radius for a larger circle and the outer edge would be the hem. Not Helpful 22 Helpful However long you decided to make it. Use your waist size and your preferred length.
