Today the poodle skirt is largely associated with retro costumes. But I think it is classic, fun and a quick and easy way to replicate 1950s fashion and glamour. Also they are very easy to make. Once you have made one you can go on to change colours and applique patterns to go with any outfit or occasion.
I have made my own poodle skirt and plan to make allot more! I have attached many pictures of original skirts and patterns to give you some inspiration. Also a you tube video of my own homemade skirt.

|This is my first home made skirt.|
|A pretty applique idea|

|I love this festive idea!|
So I hope you have enjoyed my little look into the poodle circle skirt style!! If you get the chance to make your own skirt I'd love to see your pictures and hear how you have got on! You can post my pictures to my facebook page - www.facebook.com/vintagedoris
