I hate wasting fabric! I had made a cute shirred top and I had plenty of great fabric left over. I decided to use the extra fabric to sew an amazing mini wrap skirt. His skirt is so much fun to wear and can be styled in so many different ways. If you are looking for a really quick and easy DIY, this wrap skirt tutorial is definitely for you! Get started and follow a few simple steps that will leave you with an absolutely gorgeous and professional-looking new skirt.
To get started on creating this gorgeous wrap skirt I needed to have the perfect pattern. I couldn’t wait to get started on this fashion DIY.
I took my waist and hip measurements and used the pattern to start cutting my fabric. I decided to make my skirt 45 cm long but you can, of course, make it as long or as short as you want.
Next, I cut the curved hem of my new, stunning skirt. This is such a gorgeous element of the wrap skirt!
In this next step, I used the pattern diagram as a guide and marked the darts on the fabric. This detail would definitely help make my skirt more fitted.
I hopped on over to my sewing machine and sewed the darts in place. I then made sure to press the fabric so that it would sit exactly as I needed it to.
I then moved on to finish the raw edges of the skirt. I used a rolled hem foot but you can always fold it twice over and sew if you prefer.
To make the waistline, I used the tie from the original skirt but you can also just cut a strip from the extra fabric. I pinned it to the top of my skirt and sewed it on.
Next, it was time to add buttons and buttonholes to the skirt. I made sure to try it on before to make sure the buttons would be in the right positions.
For the final step, all I had to do was press the fabric to give my new, stunning skirt the professional finish it needed.
I absolutely adore my new skirt! How would you style this amazing piece? Let me know in the comments below!
