It seemed like a good time to do this since it's Skirt Week over at Crafterhours. Go on over to their Flickr pages, with five categories, there are already a bunch of lovely skirts in the pools that will inspire you to
Last week or so (were does the time go?) Jess and I were talking about wrap skirts. It's kind of a love hate thing. The comfort factor isn't quite were I want it. The ties tend to shift. Sometimes they take a lot of fabric. I'd been contemplating it since then and Friday night around 7pm (cause that's the way I do things these days) I decided to experiment.
I started with this much lovely jersey knit,
and a scant thirty one inches of yummy Art Gallery fabric.
I ended up with this.
I never felt like it was going to gape or fall off or strangle my waist.
I won't wear it with my shirt tucked in, this is just to show you how it looks at the top.
You can also see I haven't managed to hem it yet. I am going to hem it (I am Jessica, promise.) I have decided to round off the angle at the bottom.
This is how I wore it out on Saturday. Yes I did, un-hemmed and all. It was that comfortable.
Should I try it again, work out the kinks and tell you how?
Would you be interested?
