Wrap skirt wearing mamas tribe - Page 3

post #41 of 189
Let's see. I tucked it under my arms with the tails/straps evenly out front. Then I tied it once in the front very snugly. (up to and including the skirt fabric, not just the tails. tight was especially important for my small chested self. those boobs are not going to hold it up on their own! ) I pulled the tie vertically, not horizontally, if that makes sense. Then I pulled the two tails up around my neck, adjusted the top to cover where I wanted it to, and tied it. Again, I did this pretty snugly. To make it a little less 'swingy', I tucked in a small corner underneath into my jeans. I liked it untucked, too. YMMV, which is why I mention it.

This is me with one of the short ones I received, as a shirt.

It looks great on you....I know that I sent it to you but I totally don't even recognize it. Must have been going cross-eyed looking at all those skirts

Thanks, both of you. I needed the pick me up today.

It was in the package with the taupe-ish neutral print side out, so that's why it looks so different.

Here's mine. So far it is just a skirt. The over skirt is blue, and the underskirt is taupe-ish with a green border on the side and part of the bottom.

I wanna play! I wanna play!

I'm 5'9", no boobs (well, Bs), Polish child-bearing hips.

The skirt is a 36 incher. The pics were taken by my almost two year old, hench the questionable quality. After a day at the zoo - that explains the hair.

Style One

Style Two (two different angles)

Style Three

ooohoohooh! I got my first skirt last month and these were the pics I took. I'm expecting another from a coop this week.

Oh and when I tried these I was just winging it

halter tie

Twisted in the front (I need a strapless bra to pull this one off)

tied around neck

and of course - just a skirt

I got mine!

Here are the two that I got. The green is 34' and the blue is 36" Will I wear them in public? Probably not, but they are fantastic house dresses.

I so wish I could figure otu a way to wear them with my nursing bra and not look like one big blob/boob. I guess if nothing else I can just wear them as a skirt!

Huh, I was wishing you could wear them as dresses and still be able to nurse. *sigh*

OT here too, I was wondering what patten you used for the little coat? That is so sweet. Of course, the chances of me knitting it are slim, I didn't finish the washcloth my mom started me on, but I did start making longies a few weeks ago.

Everyone looks gorgeous in their wraps! Now I really want one, but I'd need a plus size for sure. I wish they would do a plus size co-op because I can't afford full price right now.

It's my understanding (based on the website wholesale orders page) that the company does not offer plus sizes in the wholesale lots. I think that's why they aren't showing up as an option in the co-ops.

One of the co-ops I belong to said that the company told them they WILL do plus size lots. I think they're going to order some soon.
