Wrap skirt wearing mamas tribe - Page 6

post #101 of 189
These will be great for vacation...light packing! I'm leaving on a plane on Tuesday, but I won't get mine in time, so I'm going to wing it and make some. I already got fabric and ribbon, but could someone please tell me how big around it is at the top (where the ties are) and the bottom? I'm not doing it on the bias. I'm have some rectangles (possibly squares) and I'll either just tie some ribbon in between as is, or cut them into trapezoids and sew them together first. I don't know how good it'll look with seams, so I want to make sure it's necessary.

Just make sure you have a picture to show us how it came out.


I just received a new skirt thru a swap (thanks pixie!) and I love the patterns! They actaully look nice together.


FWIW, I saw one of these skirts yesterday in a better department store- $40 for the short sytle.

I bought one at the mall a couple of years ago. They wanted $50 for the long ones. DH talked them down (it was a kiosk and he loves to haggle for anything) to 35. So I paid $35 for a long one. It makes me sick now that I know what I can get them for.

I have 7 of them and planning to buy more. I am officially an addict. Also I'm a plus size mama (Size 22 or 24, not really sure) and I can wear the regular size as a skirt or a dress.

That one is the regular size and I have no problem with not enough overlap. I'd love a link to any videos that give more instructions. I'm always looking for cool new ways to wear them.

The short ones from my co-op were all 22" I think.

Hi all! I've been lurking in here, and loving all the cute pictures. I just got mine yesterday (thanks avengingophelia!) and I really want to love them. They are *so* goreous. I just have a couple questions.
1) What do you do about static cling? Mine were clinging to my legs withing seconds of wearing them.

2) No matter how I try to tie it (as a skirt) one side is much longer than the other. Is that normal? If so, where do you put the "long" side?

I also want to note that I'm plus size (18ish) and the regulars fit me fine. They look silly on me as a top (I'm a 38 G up there) since I can't get away without wearing a bra, but there is still ample coverage if I chose to wear it that way.

Amy, so cool about that skirt! glad it found a good home

I wear the longer part in back - ends up being smoother that way for me too.

you guys all look so cute in yours!!!!

Skirt pictures

I have a brown/green 30 inch and a blue 36 inch in the album.

I am 5'6", size 16. I think I like the 30 incher a lot better. I like the colors a lot but I think the 36 is too long, bulky, and the colors are a bit bright. It is not even close to silk and feels a lot thicker than the other one I got.

The regular skirt offers enough material for me, I don't think I need a plus. There is about a foot of overlap underneath where it crosses.

What do you think?

Subbing. I just made a wrap skirt using this tutorial and a pair of wrap pants using this tutorial. I am a wrap addict.

Tilia, the pics are great! I love the colors!

I got the plus size one, and it is just too bulky, but I think it will be good for a marternity skirt/dress.
I'm goint to order a smaller one and see, I'm about an 18, so we'll see.

Um, that is cute! On another note, I have a giant cubical type thing like that, so does yours always look that neat? BEcause it's suppose to be for the kids toys/book and my DH uses it for a "throw whatever i find to make wife think I helped clean up in it"
post #117 of 189
No, not even close! We just repainted the living room so everything was taken out. I just recently reorganized DDs books and now I am trying to keep them neat. I give it a month.

I think they all look great on you and I *especially* like the long one. I don't think it looks bulky at all!

Hey! I'm going to join all of you wrap addicts. I love these and have a few. I'll try to get some pix up soon.

At the store where I bought the last couple I got there was this guy who showed me some new and really fun ways to wear them. You know the little coconut shell sarong holder thingys? Those work really well instead of tying when you wear them as a shirt or dress. That way there isn't a bulky knot and the coconut shell adds some nice detail.

I also like these over harem pants for bellydancing, they're just so pretty.

Hi all, I borrowed a long from a momma here for vacation and then found some while I was gone and bought a short and a medium (only $16 each in south beach for the karaza brand ones- a steal as everything in south beach was outrageously priced) Loving them, but having issues with the medium. It has two off set holes in the waist (not a direct center hole) I am tiny (5'2" and just over 100 pounds) and I can not tie it well, way way to much fabric. I am going to try to place a button hole in the center to see if it helps. any ideas
