A while back I had the oppurtunity to test out a pattern from the lovely Beth over at Sew DIY . It’s a fitted wrap skirt pattern written for the advanced beginner. It has 3 different length options as well as 3 closure options that can be mixed up for your preference. It includes waist darts (which I love) and the option of adding a lining again another love. The fabric recommendations are a light to medium-weight woven fabric such as cotton, linen, corduroy, denim, crepe de chine or challis. For my test skirt I decided to go with a mini length and button closure. As for fabrics I went with this aztec denim that I was gifted from my mothers stash so I have no idea as to it’s age or where it came from. The length and weight of this skirt makes it a perfect addition to my fall wardrobe.
From cut to finish it was a fast sew. A few steps required a second read over the instructions to make sure I was doing it right. I have a long torso so I had a tough time deciding where I wanted my skirt waistband to sit. Ultimately I chose the skinniest part of my waist which I think is great for my body type.
