How to Make a Wrap Skirt to Suit Any Size?

 

 

Wrap skirts are great since you can create one that will be easily flexible to a wide range of sizes. You can use any material that you like to make your wrap skirt. You’ll just need some necessary sewing skills and a sewing machine. If you haven't had your own device, let consult this guide Best Portable Sewing Machine For Beginners Reviews to find out the one that fits you.

 

 

 

 

Part1: Measuring and Cutting the Fabric

 

Hold one end of the measuring ribbon and wrap the other end around your waist. Pull the measuring tape so that it’s tight around your waist and check the measurement. Then, add the width by 1.5. Measure against your leg to decide how long you want the dress to be and use this as your other measurement.

Then, add 2 in (5.1 cm) to this measurement and to the waist increased by 1.5. The 2 in (5.1 cm) will provide extra fabric for the stitches adjustments. Use a keen pair of scissors to cut the fabric to these dimensions.

 

 

Part2: Folding the Fabric

 

Fold the waistband section in half lengthwise. Lay the waistband piece on a plane surface with the wrong (back) side of the fabric facing up. You’ll need a large, hard exterior to work on, such as a table or clean area of a hardwood or tile floor. Press hard along the fold to produce a crease.

If you do this step correctly, you won't have to care about which sewing machine to use because any type of sewing machine can support you.

To continue, fold the piece in half again. This will cover the raw edges on the inside of the strip. Fold 0.25 in (0.64 cm) of the top end and sides twice. Next, lay the skirt stuff with the backside facing up. Then, fold over the top 0.25 in (0.64 cm) of fabric so that the rough edges are going in towards the wrong side of the fabric.

 

 

Part3: Attaching the Waistband

 

Once you have collapsed the edges of the skirt, take the fabric to the sewing machine and put it under the presser foot. Sew a straight stitch along each of these points to secure the folded fabric. Fold the skirt piece in half as well and enter a pin near the top edge to indicate the center of the piece.

Insert pins to attach the waistband to the top edge of the skirt. Lay the waistband with the folded edge facing off from you. Then, place the skirt section over the waistband with the wrong (back) side of the fabric facing up. Sew a straight stitch to connect the waistband to the skirt.

After you finish all the steps above, you will have a DIY wrap skirt that is one of a kind. Let's try it now with the help of the best starter sewing machine that you can easily find at Crafts Selection website. Good luck!
