I made a wrap skirt, with my cousin's help of course, and I wanted to see  what y'all think.

All spread out. (sorry about the cat, he wouldn't move)

Standing still.

Back of the skirt while twirling.

Side of the skirt while twirling.

And twirling just for fun!

The first picture isn't very much like the true color. All of the other one's are though.
I like to twirl if you haven't noticed. Cheesy

Okay, here is another skirt I did and a tutorial I made on paint.

Oh, and just a note, You will need to iron in between the cut and sew steps. Lots of ironing! If you are wondering how long to cut the ties you really just cut them to the length that you like them at. (You will have to make the tutorial picture bigger to read the text)
If anyone needs further help just pm me.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Every girl should have a skirt to twirl in!  Very nice job.  I have a cat who    I like to call my "assistant" because she's always "helping" me with projects like yours is in that picture.

I didn't use a pattern. Well, I used my cousins wrap skirt for a pattern.
Basicaly you just cut half a circle as long as you want it and then half a circle inside your big half circle for your waist. Then you put binding tape (I used my own homemade stuff) around all of the edges and enough at the corners of the waist for tie thingies (you want them long enough to go around your waist and tie like you like).
I'll try to draw up some sort of pattern/tutorial with pictures this week.

SWEET! Thanks for the tutorial! I can't wait to make a bunch of these in different colors!

I love it!  I'm not much of a sewer but I'm hoping I can figure this one out.  I need wrap skirts!
