Upgraded: Spring Wrap Skirt!

Spring Wrap Skirt, a sewing tutorial from Polka Dot Cottage

A few years ago, I taught myself to use InDesign to create nice-looking eBook PDFs, and all of my publications since then have been in this spiffy new format. At the time, in addition to writing the new eBooks, I took to reformatting some of my older ones, but I never finished the job.

Today, I got back in the saddle and brought one of my most popular patterns up to speed: the Spring Wrap Skirt.

06 skirt 02Looking over this tutorial as I worked on it, I realized that there were some parts that could have been explained more clearly, a step that really would have benefited from a diagram, and a few other things I wanted to change. So, I took the time to work on the text a bit, and I introduced a few new images to the tutorial. All of this while also knocking it down from 12 pages to 7, and making it look just so much nicer inside.

I really like wearing these wrap skirts because they look more tailored and fitted to your body than an elastic-waist skirt does. At first glance, your wrap skirt could easily be mistaken for a zippered skirt!

This is a tutorial aimed at beginners, but suitable for all skill levels. I don’t use a whole lot of sewing jargon, so if that stuff confuses you, no worries! This is a plain English approach to measuring your body and making a skirt that is designed to fit you perfectly.

Have I enticed you at all? Let me share one other little secret with you: I have gained about 15 pounds since I made my first wrap skirt, and it still feels as great on me now as it did the day I sewed it. Try that with a zippered skirt!
