That's a Wrap

Working with Craft Magazine is always a joy. The projects are fun & creative and the staff is equally talented. Not only did I design this simple wrap skirt project for a recent article, but got roped into modeling the final product for the publication. I think I'll stick to being crafty...
This is the patterned side of the skirt. The grosgrain tie waistband allows for ever-expanding waist sizes. The pocket was just a bit of flair to add interest.
Reversed, I used a heavier dark-wash denim. It adds great weight to the skirt and allows the wearer to simplify the look. When the wind blows, you get a hind of the print on the inside.

LOVE IT! but for someone like myself who makes up the sewing as i go along - did you use a pattern?

Hi CraftyBitch,

I was wondering how you created the pattern for Wrap. It looks so professional, and I would like to create a pattern that looks so good.

Any direction would be great!
Cheers
Crystal

Glad you all like it! The pattern was posted on Craft Magazine's website for download. Do a quick search on their site.

I love this skirt and I found the pattern, but I can't seem to find how much fabric to use. Can you please let me know as I would love to make this as soon as possible.

This skirt is so very cool. Are there any instructions that go with it on the actual construction? I did download the pattern but I did not see how to actually put it together and also how the waistband/tie is added. Any help/advice would be great!

and i also adore those red shoes!!!!

i found the link to the CRAFT MAGAZINE, but it seems it is very old and I can't subscribe to it any more. How else can i get the pattern and instructions?
I looooove the idea of 2 skirts in 1.
hope you can help me.
