Easy Peasy Wrap Midi Skirt (£2.99)

Hey gang.

So this project is ultra easy and ultra affordable. I’ve made a simple wrap skirt  for the cost of £2.99 when in shops they’re £30 or more.

It’s made of two rectangles of fabric and doesn’t have any fastenings or anything to worry about. You can use any non-stretch fabric that takes your fancy. I like viscosey fabrics because they handle nicely, don’t crease too much, come in lots of patterns, and are widely available at fabric shops and market stalls. I got mine from a market stall in Tooting, but you’ll be able to find similar stuff anywhere.

I’ve recommended a pattern that uses your hip width of fabric plus 30cm, which gives a decent overlap but a considerable split up the side. If you want to be more covered up, feel free to use more fabric.

This is a perfect first-timer’s project. Please have a go and let me know how you get on. Good luck!

    1. Thank you! 🙂
      It would definitely work. Just make sure that when you buy fabric its width is greater than the full length of your desired skirt plus the 8cm for the belt. Fabric generally come sin 120 or 150ish width, so if you’re rather tall then smaller fabric rolls might leave you with chilly ankles!
