We heart it - the Surface Art Wrap Skirt

The oh-so-versatile Surface Art Wrap Skirt.
Here made up in Umbrella Prints hemp/organic Cotton Grand Hearts in Smokey black.
If there's one pattern we recommend time and time again for beginner sewers, it could well be this one - the Wrap Skirt by Surface Art. This skirt is a great way to dip your toe either into or back-into sewing garments. And who can go past the simple wrap skirt as a handy wardrobe staple? Not me, apparently - I've made three of them.

Look! It's just three main pieces, plus a narrow interfaced waistband. There are a couple of ties on the inside to prevent wardrobe malfunctions, and a button to finish off. Because it's a wrap skirt, there are no tricky fitting issues since you can just move the button to get the fit spot on. Sizes from XS to XL are all covered in the one pattern.

Excuse the hopper-ball flare. This version of the skirt made up in Mid Century Vessels, cotton/linen.

The pattern can be found on our website here

Plus, we've a stretch denim version of the kit on our website now too.

We also have a number of wrap skirt kits in store. These include everything you need to hit the ground running and make a wrap skirt of your own (once you've pre-washed your fabric, of course).
