* dana wrap skirt

Posted on September 27th, 2007 by maitreya. Filed under Sewing/Fabric Crafts.

A new wrap skirt with Joann’s sale rack denim and lined with a cute floral (you can see a peek at the bottom). The original plan was for double-sided, but the flower pattern is just too much for a whole skirt. I rather like it, except that it, uh, makes me look rather larger than I would prefer. I’m not sure if it’s all the fabric, or the length, or the cut, or what, because it does seem to fit. I’m going to have to consult my sewing buddies next craft night.


I used the free Dana A-line wrap skirt pattern from Fitzpatterns. I modified it somewhat: quite a bit shorter, longer ties, lined, rounded corners, and bias-tape-trimmed. The pattern was pretty painless except that I could not keep the waistband from twisting. It’s barely noticeable, and it actually makes one of the ties spiral in a kind of pretty way, so I left it after the third ripout-resew iteration.

    I think you were right on the print being too much. I think it adds a nice surprise factor when someone catches a glimpse of the inside. Great job!

    Very nice! I just made one recently too. I really like the waist line and the bias tape trim on yours. Very cute. I may have to have another go using some of your ideas! Thanks!
