Who doesn’t love a tulip wrap skirt? Super easy to make, comfy, and cute! I used the discarded polka dot polyester fabric from this dress I refashioned, and grabbed an anchor button and had at it! Loving the burgandy, polka dots, and tulip skirt trends right now. Also great if you are planning on losing or gaining weight (like pregnancy or postpartum) because you can wrap the skirt smaller or bigger with every added button hole.
1.5 yards of flowy fabric (polyester, rayon, knit)
Cut the piece of fabric in one of the shapes below, making the top your waist length x2 plus 12″-16″ for the cross over in the front.
**This will be less flowy and more flat in the front (unlike mine)
**This will be more flowy, the more curved the top the more flowy it will be (like mine). I first started cutting a thick and wide V shape and then rounded the sharp edges out. So my skirt was even more angled then this.
1. Hem the edges.
2. Gather the top of the skirt tip it is the length of you waist plus 12″-16″ for the cross over.
3. Make a big bias tape as wide as you like it x2 with an extra inch and the length. Fold over and iron in half, then fold/iron one side in a quarter inch.
4. Fold over and iron both ends.
5. Pin and sew the un folded part to the gathered top and sew a straight stitch. Fold up and iron.
6. Fold over the waistband to the other back side and pin down. Sew a topstitch along the edge of the waistband on the outside of the skirt.
7. Add 2 buttons to the front of one side, 6″ to 9″ apart depending on how much you want the skirt to cross over. Then make 2 button holes the same width across on the other side. You can make extra holes to adjust waist size (if you have more bulkiness one day underneath or whatnot). If you want the buttons and button holes to be hidden to be hidden, sew the button hole on just one side of the waist before step 5.
