I found this wrap skirt on Pinterest, which you can buy on ebay for close to $30. Check out my board to see more ideas of things I want to make for me on Pinterest. It is such a pretty skirt. Perfect for the beach. It's simple and cute and I want to make one.
When I go shopping in stores that have fabric I can't help but find something to bring back home. I found this fabric at Wal-mart. I thought this would be a good fabric to try out making my own wrap skirt. I love the dots. The colors are so cute. I picked up some white fabric to go under the print fabric because the white background is a little thin.
I read through a couple of patterns I found online and they seemed a bit complicated and I just wanted something simple. I decided to just wing it and try it to see how it would come out. If it had turned out better I would have provided a tutorial, but the whole things still needs some work to make it a better end product.
In the end the skirt is wearable and fun. It is also comfortable. Once I finished it I wore it for the rest of the day.
I was eager to get pictures of me wearing the skirt. My husband wasn't home yet so I had the boy help me. He wasn't as interested in taking pictures of me as I was hoping. He likes taking pictures so I guess I caught him on an off day. He only took a few of them and actually did a pretty good job.
It was a little windy that day and I was worried about showing too much if the wind caught the skirt just right.
Well, still covered! So nothing to worry about there. I had cut the panels for the skirt a little shorter than I had originally planned. It needs more wrap, I think.
When my husband got home I had him take a few more pictures of me. Thanks darling.
In the end I did make a wrap skirt for me in some adorable fabric. The whole process needs more work. Maybe a circle skirt patten to help with the wrapping? I did add pockets to the skirt, and they work, although they are a bit small and feel strange when I put my hands in them. That should be an easy fix though.
I have more of this fabric so I can try to perfect my process, try something different, and maybe have better results.
