That's a Wrap!


I finished Autumn's wrap skirt early last Friday, and she was thrilled to be able to wear it that very day. Unfortunately, I forgot to take her picture! The next morning, I whipped one up for myself. I'll definitely be making a few more of these. They go together quickly, and are really comfortable to wear. I made Autumn's as directed in Sew What! Skirts. I made two changes for mine. I cut the waistband at four inches rather than three, to make it just a little wider, and I added interfacing to the waistband. Because you place a button hole in the band for the tie to slip through, it gave it more substance.


And I wore mine to worship on Sunday.

Cute! Wrap skirts are so comfortable and simple to make--I remember them from junior high sewing class. I am going to look for that book at the library this week!

Jodi said...

LOL I think Randi and I must be about the same age ... I too remember wrap skirts from junior high.

I love your fabric choice - so springy/summery!

I wished we lived closer then you could teach me to sew; maybe then I'd enjoy it. :-) My few experiences were far from enjoyable!

I love the fabric.

I'm sure Autumn was thrilled! =) Was her skirt the same fabric? lol It looks groovy.

Beautiful wrap, Tracy. You are quite the seamstress. I love wrap-a-rounds. So easy and carefree. Beautiful colors, too. Good job!!!
