One thing you will notice about me on this blog is that I love to make skirts. They are one of the first things I learned to make as a teenager, and I love them because there are a million possiblities. And now that I have an 11 month old crawling EVERYWHERE, I love them even more because they are a one nap project. YES!
And circle skirts. Well, they are just up there on my skirt list. Probably because they are one of the first things that I started sewing when my daughter was born, after pillowcase dresses, and simple elastic waist skirts. They are fast, perfect for any age and very cute on. Another YES!
And today I am showing how to take this simple circle skirt pattern and turn it into a wrap skirt. Easy and fun....and perfect for any sewer.
Ok, first you have to make a circle skirt. If you do not know how to do that, click HERE or HERE. Just follow the tutorial for CUTTING out your skirt only. (Although I learned to do it with a tape measure and pins, more like this tutorial...so choose whichever one you like :)
Allright...let's get started. (Ok, I am switching fabric on you....this fabric below is a darling skirt....it just didn't photograph well. And I am secretly kind of glad because I then made the melon colored one that Iam in LOVE with. So summery and fun.)
I center the waistband so the ties are equal.
(If you have never worn a wrap skirt click HERE to see how to put one on. It will give you more of an idea of where you want your buttonhole. I usually put mine near one hip.)
There you go! Enjoy your wrap skirts! I made myself a tan linen one and I LOVE it too! So, make yourself a couple as well!!!
