Sweet Gingham Wrap Midi Skirt
It's been hard keeping up with all the fun, but I was able to photograph and write a little bit about my entry for the Ginghamalong just in the knick of time! I quickly snapped some pictures of this skirt after school last night, so it's a little wrinkle-y, but I was running out of time to share it - the deadline for the contest entry is TODAY!
The wrinkles are just a sign of being well-loved anyways, right?
I self-drafted this midi skirt with an adorable cotton large-scale gingham print I hauled here. You might have seen on my Instagram story that I was making if for my first day back to school, and since then I've worn it three more times! I was worried that the wrap skirt might get a little dangerously scandalous, but the midi-length gives me plenty of coverage. I'm seriously obsessed with the midi-length!
This skirt was an experiment in self drafting, and for my next version I plan to do a few things differently. I originally planned to add a waist band, but it ended up being a little too bulky and removed it. The facing I added to replace it could have been a little more even across the top, and I think the snaps could be moved a little further to the back.
But for a figuring-it-out-as-you-go kinda make, I'm super pleased!
There's not really a whole lot more to share on this make, but I'm thinking I might post a tutorial sometime soon. What do you think? Let me know!
Until next time,
