This pattern comes from the book “Weekend Sewing” by Heather Ross. Way back in college, I sewed wrap skirts for my dorm mates, so finding this pattern meant I had to sew one again just to bring back memories! I wrote and blog post about using Heather’s instructions, including some corrections and adjustments to the pattern. I also included a short tutorial on handstitching a narrow rolled hem. Check it out!
I used cotton calico and thread, no need for buttons or zippers, which is great!
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
