There’s something inherently appealing about a well-crafted wrap skirt. It’s a timeless piece that exudes elegance and can be a versatile addition to your wardrobe. What makes it even more special is that you can make one yourself, and it’s easier than you might think. In this post, we’ll walk you through creating your very own brocade wrap skirt – a chic and fashionable choice for various occasions.
1. 98 cm x 120 cm of Reversible Embroidered Cotton: Choose a fabric that speaks to your style. Brocade, with its intricate patterns, is a fantastic choice for a more luxurious look.
2. 270 cm of Pre-folded Bias Tape (1.27 cm wide): This will be used to neatly finish the edges of your skirt.
3. 100 cm of Pre-folded Bias Tape (4.5 cm wide): For adding a decorative trim to the hem.
4. 2 Pairs of Large Staples: These will serve as closures for your wrap skirt.
Let’s Get Started:
1. Download the Pattern: Start by obtaining the wrap skirt pattern you’ll be using. You can easily find these online or create your own based on your measurements.
2. Sew the Darts to the Front and Back of the Skirt- Carefully sew the darts on both the front and back pieces of your skirt. Darts give your skirt its shape and help it drape beautifully.
– As you sew the darts, be sure to leave a length of thread at the end. You’ll use this to tie off the threads once you’re done.
– Thread a needle and pass it through the dart, then fold the seam over the center and stitch it down.
Make the French seam on the sides: – sew the side
– cut the margin of the back skirt
– fold towards the back skirt and stitch
-Border the edge of the skirt (except the waist) with the bias
-Border the waist of the skirt with the bias
-Attach the staples
