sk8ter wrap skirt



In staying with my 6-month pledge to Wardrobe Refashion, I've made another item of clothing, a skirt this time.

I made up a pattern for a simple one piece wrap skirt, and finished it with bias binding made from the red floral fabric. I didn't originally plan for the red floral panel, but added it when I realized I didn't have a large enough piece of the olive fabric.



Necessity drove the process--I needed something to wear to Dave's concert tonight that would go with my new 'skater grrl' socks. Rock on.

honestly wow, I saw your skirt on the wardrobe refashion blog and I am seriously impressed that you just 'made this up'. Well, I wish I could do something like that, I am a total sewing beginner and don't really know where to start.
cheers,
