Urban Girl Wrap Skirt


Well I was so excited to receive my pattern and fabric I ordered with my $25 voucher I won from Shabby Fabrics. I really have not made that much for myself so this time I was thinking about me :-)

I used to wear alot of wrap skirts in years gone by. They are really comfy and quite flattering.
This is what I ended up with.

The pattern is called Urban Girl Wrap. It has the option of having a ruffle all the way around it. I prefer it a little less frilly. I also shortened the pattern by a few inches as I'm not very tall.

I used the Michael Miller fabric Antiquity Quatrefoils. It is not too bold. I nearly had a major disaster though. I was supposed to cut 3 pieces for the tie and silly me only cut 1. I then used ALL of the rest of the fabric to make the bias binding. When I discovered my mistake I called my local Spotlight store to see if they had any.

They didn't.

I ended up cutting the 1 piece I had in half which gave me 2 pieces 1/2 the width I needed. This was enough to get the job done but it was only just wide enough to put in the buttonhole to thread the tie through.

I am still really happy with the result and have worn the skirt a few times already.
I will definately make another one for myself down the track.


  1. Looks good, Sherry. It is a flattering design. Great fabric choice.

  2. It looks great! I love the fabric. Isn't nice, when once in a while we actually make something for ourselves!

  3. Oooh, I have a wrap skirt pattern that I haven't used in a while. I may have to get that back out. You did a fantastic job. It looks so nice.:)

  4. Really gorgeous. Wrap skirts are great. I have a skirt for myself in the works but it has been a hard slog with lots of mistakes so I have been having a very long break from it!! You have given me some motivation to complete it!

  5. It looks great! You did an awesome job. Thanks for linking it up and sharing with us!

  6. Hi Sherry, I've featured your great looking Urban Wrap skirt today...
