Not, really-- it's on me, but still...

I have tried tznius wrap skirts, and I like them, but these silk ones are so flowy and pretty.

So I got one on ebay for me and one for dd. Can't wait til they arrive!

To da-tamsta... 3yo w endless energy in 115 degree heat? I'd say a wading pool in the kitchen! It's nice and cool in the air; they will slosh water out which will soak all their "snack goo" off the kitchen floor-- when done, just soak up the water w old towels to mop-- win- win-win. Have fun!

Oh! That is a great idea! Thanks! I'm trying it tomorrow!

Got any idea what to do with a 3 year old with endless energy when it hits 115?? Let me know.

Yay, I can finally join this tribe! I got a 30 inch enwrapture vintage for my birthday, even though it's not my birthday yet I'm wearing it. The long section is olive green (in some light it looks brown and in some light it looks a deep sage color) with south western looking subtle patterns and the short section is burgundy colored with batik like roses all over and a landscape in black along the apron ties.

So far I have tried on every style on the enwraptured web site but that was when my baby was napping. He woke up when I was wearing it like http://www.enwrapturevintage.citymax.com/albums/album_image/4894578/5132408.htm which was really easy to nurse in. I was just wondering what other ways to wear the dress are good for breast feeding? Oh and I don't wear nursing bras at all and usually just wear tight tank tops instead of bras so with this dress I think I might have some leakage after nursing since I won't have an extra layer. So quetion two what is the best way to wash breast milk out of silk?

I totally love this dress and can picture myself wearing it for the rest of the summer and buying a longer one if I can ever afford it. So happy I got this for my bday!

So if anyone is still active in this tribe please help me figure out how to wear the dress like in this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=He3pixAr5NU&feature=related the clip is around 18 seconds like the comment says. It's soo pretty like that but I just cant figure it out. Thanks

Well that's a gorgeous one, good luck! I think it will look different with two different layers, as most of them are - looks like the skirt pictured in that wrap at 18sec. has two similar layers, which both have extrawide stripes of the same three fabrics.

Oh, that's not the dress I have, it sure is a pretty color combo though. I am just wondering how to wear the one I have in that style. I have tried a few different ideas I have to make it look like that but it ends up being very saggy in the back. I'm just hoping there is a tutorial for it, if not maybe I need to figure it out and make one:)

So excited!  I just got my first wrap skirt!  I got it for an early Christmas present this year.  It's not Enwrapture, it's Urban Nomad.  I found it at the mall while shopping with hubby and just fell in love.  Now I'm trying to figure out how to make it myself so I can have lots and lots of them, because I can't afford to keep buying these, lol!
