I don’t know about you but I ADORE wrap skirts. They are so easy to wear and can be created in an endless array of colors and (even normally avoided) prints. As of late, I have been hooked onto this sweet number 4287 by Butterick, circa 1969. It has extra long wraparound ties, two side pockets and a funky asymmetric hem!
This pattern is so quick and simple to whip up with only 4 pattern pieces. I only had to make a couple of minor adjustments to accommodate my non-size 8 body, but no other changes were necessary. I thought the pocket a cute feature as it doesn’t require a separate pattern piece, you just fold it back and stitch it to the skirt body!
I did one skirt up in a funky cotton tribal print, one in a lovely peacock print (wish I had more of this fabric), one in a retro circle print, and one in a poly satin stripe. I’m thinking next I might do a lightweight corduroy for Fall or cotton eyelet for summer.
The swimsuit however, being a size 8, is completely out of the question, so…
