Wool and Linen - The Skirt Edition

It's fair to say, your girl has a soft spot for skirts. Leather, wool, linen; they are an easy way to mix up your wardrobe and they're so darn comfortable.

Here are another two recent skirts, and they certainly won't be the last.

Bonus drinking game: one shot for every photo where I'm touching my hair. You're welcome.

Pink Faux Wrap Skirt

I used a beautiful heavy weight linen from The Fabric Store for this self drafted skirt.

It's unlined and is closed at the centre back with an invisible zipper. I can't overstate how comfortable it is wearing linen. It feels light, breathes well and they say, improves with age.

McCall patterns recently released a pattern that is very similar to my version, minus the front darts. So if you are wanting to make a skirt like this, check out M7845

The Wool Wrap Skirt

A self drafted, wool-blend wrap skirt, made with fabric from Spotlight.

This skirt is unlined and sits just below the waist, with facings instead of a waistband.

I repurposed the leather straps from an old, very loved pair of boots that had 'gone to God'. 
Using a leather needle on my sewing machine, I attached the straps to the skirt to use as closures. I love that I was able to breathe new life into an old pair of boots, to create something new.

Make The Look

If you're looking to make your own wrap skirt, The Nita Wrap Skirt by Sew DIY is a similar pattern and comes in different skirt lengths.



Or use Simplicity 8459 and substitute the self-fabric closure for leather straps.
