how to sew wrap around skirts
A half-circle skirt fits smoothly through the waist and hips and then widens, creating a nice drape to the skirt that swings gracefully as you move, without all the fabric you would use in a full-circle skirt.
Style of the skirts is simple. Silhouette accentuate the shape.
The basis is a half-circle. This skirt is suitable for any shape. Take a warm woolen cloth. For example, soft tweed.
Also need a piece of leather.
Measure the circumference of your waist. Add 7-10 inches to your measurement and draw a line on the piece of fabric equal to the augmented measurement.
Determine the length of skirt you would like. You may want to measure a skirt you already own for the length. By using an existing skirt, you will have an idea of how the skirt will look on your body and if it is a good length for your height.
Fold the fabric inside out. Set aside in a corner of a half measure, draw a line the bottom and rounded edges.
Cut and sew strips of leather around the edge for the skirt .
Measure the circumference of the bottom hemline of the skirt. Cut a piece of 2-inch wide leather to this length plus ½ inch.
Arrange the leather along the hemline of the skirt and pin it to the wrong side of the hemline with the good side of the leather facing inward to the good side of the skirt. Sew the leather in place with a straight stitch.
Draw on the skin strip length equal measure, and a width of 4 inches. Cut strips of leather.
Sew the belt. Sew the button in place where you marked it.
