wrap-and-go skirt

May 20, 2010

i’m determined not to buy any more fabric this summer (wishful thinking?). i’ve got a huge rubbermaid bin overflowing with fabric that has been neglected for too long. this is the second time i’ve made this skirt. (you can peek at the first one over on my blog) i used a cotton/linen blend that has been languishing in the bin since last summer. i love this pattern, it’s very versatile. the previous skirt i made was sort of hippy-ish, this one is a little classier. it was a cinch to throw together and the only alteration i had to make was, as always, to shorten the hem. i always have the most success with 70’s patterns. wow, i seriously need a tan… 😉

  1. That pattern takes me back! Absolutely EVERYONE had that pattern!! I made mine in light-weight denim.

    I like your dressier fabric choice.

  2. I *lived* in that pattern…denim, pine green textured double knit…made it a million times. Thanks for the flashback 🙂 Gail

  3. Agreed–what a flash back! The wrap skirt is what we all made for our first sewing project in Home Ec. Most of used plaid. I'd never considered making one again till seeing yours–it looks great!
