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!
