The wrap skirt reminds me of long Summer holidays under a tropical heat…
Well, not that we will ever experience such heat here in England, but I have to admit that we’ve had a somewhat decent Summer so far… obviously with some pretty horrid cold and rainy days from time to time, but I’m not complaining!
Wrap skirts are good essential/basic wardrobe piece to have, simply for their versatility and level of comfiness, I’d say.
Paired with heels they can look effortlessly classy or pretty casual if paired with sandals or trainers.
While visiting my family and friends in France, last month, I picked up a bunch of fabric which hadn’t been used for years and was laying around at my parent’s house. I had already made two top and wanted to have a go at creating a wrap skirt, but didn’t want to spend money on more “expensive” fabric until I had made my first attempt at it.
This design is a twist on the wrap skirt, as you can see from the pictures it doesn’t tie on the side like the classic wrap skirt does.
Still, I think it turned out pretty great and it’s very comfy and cute.
Now let me show you how I made it!
You will need:
Some fabric (I’m using a midweight cotton fabric)
Scissors, a sewing machine, a loop turner (I did mine by hands and it took ages so I advice, if you can, to get one) and a toggle button, (snap buttons as extra if wanted)
My Wrap Skirt Design
If you want it to be more secure, you can add one or two snap buttons on the inside to join the overlap and the underlap and secure them together. I would place them inside where the overlap ends.
But I wore it all day and jumped around on it and it never came undone 🙂
Happy sewing and don’t hesitate to share your creation with me!
PS: This is my first time making one and putting a step by step together of the process, any feedback would be welcome and greatly appreciated!
