Musings À La Mode: DIY Oriental Wrap Skirt ~ 2 Ways

DIY oriental wrap-skirt
For those that know me well, know very well that I am a littttttttle bit of a TV addict.
Day n’ night, if I’m bored, that’s where you will find me.
Square eyed and worringly proud of it….

These skirts were so simple and quick that during my daily (maybe hourly… cough cough*) TV sesh, I was able to whip up these beauty. It doesn’t take much brains or an expert sewer to pull these together. How exciting!
I made one short for me and one maxi for my sister. These skirts are totally customisable and easy to make best suit you.

You may remember me raving about the oriental trend way back, well, here we are, with a totally easy, comfortable, and affordable version which you can make at home. Nothing better, right?

1. Wrap the rectangle material around yourself and mark with a pin the height and width that you wish the skirt to be.
2. Cut out the rectangle, adding around 4cm to each edge to leave room for a double-fold hem.
3. Pin the double-fold hem on each edge, and sew.

4. Wrap the skirt around you again and mark where you wish to sew on the hook & eyes.
Anchor the hook & eye, then stitch on (tutorial here)

5. I added 2 darts at the back of both skirts, and an extra tuck around the waist of the maxi to give structure and make the skirts fit more neatly.
