Wrap skirts have many fashion benefits that make them a beautiful addition to the modern woman's wardrobe. In fact, these fashionable skirts flatter all body types and can be dressed up or down easily. Once you see the simplicity of the wrap design, you may decide to add a variety of these fashionable skirts to your wardrobe.

Stand with the fabric of the wrap skirt against your backside -- with the right side of the fabric facing out. Hold the left and right upper corners of the skirt in each corresponding hand.

Wrap the right edge of the skirt across your front to your left hip. Insert the tie through the buttonhole at your left hip.

Pull the left edge across your front toward your right hip and continue wrapping it around the backside of your body.

Join the tie from the left edge of the skirt to the tie you inserted through the buttonhole. Meet these two ties at your left hip and tie them together snugly in a double bow.

Adjust the skirt to make it comfortable and retie the ties after you adjust it, if necessary.


Wrap skirts come in different styles with various methods of wrapping. Some wrap skirts may not have a hole in the waistline for inserting the tie. These wrap skirts will have wider ties that simply wrap around your waist and resemble a tied belt after you wrap and tie the skirt on. Some wrap skirts have additional Velcro or clip enclosures for securing the wrapped edges from flying open. Making a wrap skirt would be a simple sewing project for novice or experienced sewers alike.
