Brace yourselves because what I am about to show you is
wait for it
Why is it Delightful you may ask?
I’ll tell you why it’s delightful.
It’s delightful because I am going to show you how to finish your wrap skirt.
And then I promise to never ever talk about a wrap skirt again.
Well, that is until Saturday when the second half of the class happens, and then I’ll have to brag about how talented my students are and I’ll have to show off their amazing creations. And then I’ll probably teach the class again cause it’s a seriously cool class and I’ll have to talk about wrap skirts again, but for the time being, I will shut up ad quit boring you with this skirt.
Just as soon as I finish showing you how to make the skirt.
So lets get this over with.
Take you waistband straps and, with right sides together, pin one to the corresponding side of the skirt leaving about a 20” tail on one side. The tail on the other side will be longer.
Take the second strap and with right sides together pin it to the first strap, sandwiching the skirt in-between the two.
Sew this edge with a ½” seam allowance. To give myself cleaner corners, I also like to sew the shot ends and a bit of the opposite long side of the strap as well.
Press the seam allowance open, and trim the corners.
Turn the tips of the straps right side out, and fold the waistband up away from the skirt. Press so everything is nice and smooth.
On one of the waistband strips fold down and press the ½” seam allowance.
Fold the second side down to match.
Edge stitch the folded edges together.
Try the skirt on and determine where you want the bottom strap to thread threw towards the front. Sew a buttonhole slightly shorter than the strap.
And there you have it.
A completed wrap skirt.
Which can also look like this:
And now you know why I don’t to tutorials for most of my projects.
Cause it takes
Name that movie. Hint think great big scary dog and baseball.
Congratulations on sticking with me this far, and tomorrow, I promise to not mention this skirt. Not once.
Happy Skirt Completing
