I guess I didn't have to say "simple," because there aren't many projects simpler than a nice wrap skirt:



The only thing I don't like about it is that the pattern doesn't match at the seams. I didn't think about buying enough fabric to do that until I'd already gotten home from the fabric store, and I wasn't willing to pay for another cut of the same stuff. After all, who's paying attention?

Anyway, it's super comfortable of course. I wanted a neutral color and had found a pretty fabric that mas mostly cream-colored, but then I realized I'd have to wear a slip with it. So I settled on this one; I really like gray.

This, by the way, this is yet another project I've made out of the book S.E.W. (Sew Everything Workshop) by Diana Rupp. I can't get enough of her patterns. My next project will be out of her book as well. I just spent $300 on fabric for curtains (upholstery-grade suede) in my very first house (I close in a month! Eeeee!), and the book has nice, basic guideline for curtain measurements.

It's not a mistake. It's...um...a design feature.
