I love wrap skirts and this looks like a good basic from which I can make a variety of weights and styles for summer/winter or in between. Perfeck.
I’ve muslin’d it up in calico and am now mulling about the tie closure because the pattern ain’t doing it at all well. Unless I’m being dense.
It looks fine in the next picture which shows the front of the muslin (please ignore the ‘lazy me’ pattern paper ties) ….
The long band wraps from the right hip around the back to join the shorter tie attached at the left hip, and it’s a fairly wide tie band. So you have the bulk of the band across your back whether it’s on the outside or the inside of the skirt.
Odd and definitely unflattering.
Now I’m starting to wonder if the tie is a little fussy and with a winter weight fabric it may be better to have no tie at all, even if I thinned the bands or used ribbon of some sort. I don’t really fancy the two symmetrically placed buttons option either.
Granted this isn’t a complicated sewing conundrum but rather a disagreement about closure style and placement. I’ll probably do a hidden inside button instead of the long tie and close the outside front panel with an external button.
What worked best for your wrap skirts?
