I wanted to put together a short tutorial on how I made the wrap skirt you know, before I forget and then decide to make another and have to do all the maths again—aaaaaaaaaahhhhh!!!! The first thing you need to do is figure out how big to cut your skirt pieces, right? So find your waist measurement wherever you want the waist to hit, not necessarily your true waist , then figure out how far across your body you want the skirt to overlap. But this is just a guideline based on a guesstimate. This is a pretty good amount of wrappage i. Now take your overlap and double it, then add to your waist measurement.
How to Sew a Wrap Skirt | WeAllSew
A circle skirt is a full, flowy skirt that gets its name from the circular shape of the skirt when it is spread out. You can make your own circle skirt using some colorful store bought fabric or create your own printed fabric. Even if you are new to sewing, a circle skirt is an easy project that you can complete in around an hour. To make a circle skirt, fold 1 yard of fabric 4 times into a rectangle, and cut a strip of fabric off of the open end for a waistband.
