I love wrap skirts...they grow and shrink with you. And so comfy.
I have a patchwork wrap skirt made by women in Africa out of sun washed recycled fabric in yellows and blues. It's wonderfully worn, faded and unfortunately, falling apart. The skirt was not made very well in the first place and the fabrics are now, after many washings, just too thin. I've patched and sewn and hoped. But now I need a new one.
This is 100% from stash and I wanted a partial rainbow effect, or ombre effect with the patches. It was a bear to figure out and there were a few rip-rips along the way. I miscalculated the hem patches and had to add pieces to fill in.
I also changed my mind on several fabric choices, had to scrounge more and cut way too many blues...no problem, they became the tie belt.
I just love it!
I made a chart, but it still was a lot of figuring out along the way to get the colors to fall in the right places...somewhat. Keep in mind that you want the waist to be able to wrap at least 1/3 to 1/2 the way around you. The front hangs a little flat, so I wrap to get the diagonals in front. Vary the size of the squares or add more to get the width and length you want.
