How many gals out there remember this skirt?
Yes... the old Wrap Around Skirt.
I had one and it was a popular skirt back in the day. Probably because of it's basic simplicity. A few months back this skirt pattern crossed my mind and I thought I wanted one. My mama had lost her pattern along the way and I'd looked in various on-line shops thinking I would come across it but I didn't.
What I did find was the pattern.
Yeah..for our side!!
So in about 3 hours, I had the coffee pot on, machine out and I was cutting my pattern out.
I remember my skirt as a girl being made of a heavier cotton or denim type material but I thought to go with a more light and floral material would have a better look at least for a summer skirt. I am also a short person 5' 1" so even the shorter length version of this was going to be quite long.
So, I shortened the length to hit me just above the knee.
(being short is a great reason to take up sewing)
The most involved part of this sewing pattern is one button hole.
This is just to run your belt through. There's not even a button required.
I was done.
My daughter give a hard look at first .
I had to reassure her it wouldn't look like an apron after it was wrapped and on.
For me, not even a worry over my waistline;
I would have thought to show a tutorial but when sewing with a Butterick or Simplicity pattern the instruction are extremely clear.
And as always
Thanks for stopping by and seeing what I've been up to.
Wishing you a very
