Now that spring has sprung and we’ve had the occasional day of warm weather I’ve finally had the chance to wear my wrap skirt again.
The fabrics are from the Aviary 2 line in Granite by Joel Dewberry. The main skirt panels are Sparrows in Cavern, and the hems & ties use Damask in Granite. Not my usual colours (the yellow) so I would have looked straight past it without help from the Kelani Fabric stall at the Quilt and Craft Fair last year. The skirt pattern is The Versatile Wrap by Toni of Make It Perfect, who was also kind enough to offer advice on using a one directional print. She’s also made a skirt using Aviary 2 Sparrows in Mustard.
Through most of high school I pretty much refused to wear skirts and dresses, I’ve been slowly coming around ever since. It helps that this wrap skirt is too easy to make and really comfy to wear, it works with tights and boots when it’s cool to.
Now that I have the pattern pieces cut it should only take me a couple of hours to whip up this years version, I have some gorgeous Saffron Craig fabric ready to do just that.
