Flowered Wrap Skirt

I found the most awesome wrap skirt tutorial at Home Grown.  Since I have so much of that flowered brown fabric, I thought I’d try it out.  It was so incredibly easy, taking me less than 2 hours to whip up.

     

Alterations of my own: 1) For the hem width, I multiplied it by 50% instead of 40% which gave me a little bit more flare,  2) I rounded the front corner and 3) I lined it with a brown cotton fabric.    I pinned back the corner, for the photo, so that the lining and rounded corner could be seen easier.

Adding the lining makes the whole skirt easier to make than actually hemming all around.  Plus it is reversible that way.

I’ll be adding this tutorial to my list.  It’s definitely a keeper.

    Oh no! This is so cute, maybe even cuter than that denim one you posted a while back, that I planned on making with some leftover fabric that I still haven’t gotten around to… I’m the slacker it seems. Congrats on your new part-timedom.

    Nice! I have some watermelon fabric and thought it would make a fun summer skirt with a lightweight denim or chambray on the reverse. So when you made it reversible, did you still cut the 3 panels that the pattern uses? If so, how did you do all that and still make it reversible? I’m a pretty beginner sewer, but confident with basics. I just get confused when there’s any tricky construction…
