Description

This skirt is made with the same wrap skirt pattern I used for my Roses are Red, White and Blue skirt.
I’ve made several iterations from this pattern and I think I mistakenly cut this out from a version that had the waist and hem seam allowances removed to account for bias tape binding. So it’s a little shorter than expected. (Luckily, since it’s a wrap skirt and adjustable, I can wear it a little below my waist like I do in the last photo.)

The fashion fabric is ivory cotton crocheted lace, lined with a darker handkerchief linen. Instead of making the tie I used Petersham grosgrain which is more flexible than regular grosgrain ribbon.

I was inspired to put this skirt together with an Edwardian blouse that I dyed a silvery grey, a vintage millinery brooch and my silver Remix bow wedges. To me this outfit had a bit of a Hollywood 1930s vibe and I felt like I should pin curl my hair and do a little tap dance in it! (Hence the name Tap Wrap Skirt.)
