Hi sewing friends! I've been really thrilled with the positive response to my latest PDF sewing pattern, the Nita Wrap Skirt. As is often the case, this design was inspired by RTW. Naturally, I put my own spin on it, creating a design that easily spans three lengths and is super simple to put together. The great thing about using RTW as inspiration is that you can see how to style the skirt and consider which style works for you. RTW can also give great ideas for different kinds of fabric you can use. For example, in our above inspiration photos, there's leather, corduroy, twill and suede. All of these fabrics are a of medium weight which I think helps the skirt hang straight and prevents it from flipping around (as we know wrap skirts are prone to do).
The above examples provide some great ideas for how to style the skirt. You can pair it with a crop top, a loose fitting blouse, a boxy top (maybe a Lou Box Top :) or a fitted turtleneck. You can also see how the design can go from dressy to casual depending on the fabric. The brocade like fabric in the bottom left is topped off with a tie belt and platform heels for an evening look while the bottom right, in light denim shows how to put together a weekend-casual look.
I'm working on some ideas for patterns to pair with this skirt as well as a sewalong full of photos. In the meantime, check out my roundup of tester versions of the skirt. And get your own copy of the pattern right here. Happy sewing!
