Zero Waste wrap skirt

The 6-gore wrap skirt is my most popular post.  I wear the original blue peanut print wrap skirt regularly in summer and always get a comment.

This week I revisited the the draft and made myself a new one.  It’s about 10cm longer, and 7 gore instead of 6.  With an odd number of gores, the skirt can be cut as a zero waste style.

This skirt is a little fuller than the original, since there’s an extra gore’s worth of flare in the hemline (about 25cm or 10″), and of course extending the length makes the hemline bigger too.

I used two lengths of 150 wide stretch woven for mine.  I didn’t use the zero waste layout because the stretch direction would be wrong, however, the pieces exactly fitted across (using the selvedges too) so I had very little waste and I was pretty happy.

Enjoy the Zero Waste wrap skirt.

Cheers!
