I used a wrap skirt I had as a reference for this wrap skirt.  I totally love this material and am going to make a tank top or something to go with it (eventually Tongue)

closer front view


this basically took me a half hour to make. I will  post a little tute on here later...I just spent way to long typing it out and realized that I made a simple thing very complicated Tongue 
thanks for looking!

Ok here it goes....
first I measured around her waist once and a half and added a couple of inches  and then down how far I wanted. My daughter is 3 and a bit and I used 36"around and 13" down. when you cut this you will have a lovely rectangle (I made this one reversable)

then fold it in half I put the first skirt on top to see how I cut it I just kinda winged it but the top cut is about an inch down at the fold and cut up to the open corners and at the bottom the open corners are rounded ( or they can be angled or however your crafty mind works...)

I cannot find my pic for the next step but its fairly easy...I used a whole package of one fold bias tape (3.65m long) I opend the fabric and measured from one top corner down and around the bottom to the other top corner and attached and then I used the remaining for the top with quite a bit hanging off each end.
then I got my model and went around her waist once with the skirt and made a mark (just below the tape) and made a button hole there to put the string though.  and there you have it...

the great thing about this is that its a great starter to add many different details...ruffles,pleats,pockets....
it also fits me as an apron...lol. I am horrible at explaining things so I hope I didn't leave anyone with the look I get when I read instructions Cheesy

Too cute! Make me wish I had a niece to make things for.
