I'm working on one of my own wrap skirt from a Kwik Sew pattern. It would be going a lot easier if I had actually had the required 3 yards of fabric and not just 2. (At least with a wrap skirt, I can keep wearing it even if I lost 100 pounds )

I just got mine.

If we're talking swaps, I've got a great short one (the tag doesn't say how short, but I could measure) that I'd swap for another short. It's a lovely brown fabric that I adore, but the inside is brown and yellow, and yellow makes me look ill. I could keep it and try to hide the yellow part, but if anyone needs an earth tone, I'd swap for a green, dark red, black or something besides yellow or pink.

I think they look better on the attractive model on the YouTube video than on me, but they're cute and comfortable. Plus I'm thinking they'd make great maternity wear.

I saw the co op thing but as always way too late. What is a wrap skirt? Is it already made or do you make it?

post pics please?

Doing what I can to make better choices every day!

It's basically just a wrap skirt with two layers, one a bit shorter than the other, and you can wrap it in different ways. It's already made, but the way you wrap and tie it makes it really versatile.

Does anybody have a working link to the Enwrapture skirt YouTube video? The link was disabled last I checked...

No swapping here, just ideas! I dont want to get this pulled.

I'm not at home today, but when I get back i'll post pics of how the wrap skirts look on a 9month preggo momma!

So far i've been wearing the short ones as tops, and the long ones as dresses.
Havn't figured out a fold or tie to go over/under the tummy yet. If i just wrap it straight around the tummy then I look super wide and ridicules, and if I wrap it under the tummy then there is a big length differance front to back.

However as shirts and dresses they are soooooooooooooooooo comfortable and cute! Especially right now at 36weeks in the intolerable Texas heat.

Can someone post pics for wearing it as a top or dress? I need to wear a bra since my boobs are big (36DD), so would love to know how to wear on that occasion....

I have more of these skirts than I care to admit to...

... but I did not get them via Enwrapture, in fact I have never heard of them...

Here are some links to where I have found them in the past...

These are a weakness of mine

I think I might have found my new addiction. I normally live in my skirts in the summer. These look like too much fun! Now I have to decide what one I am going to start with

Man you got the cute one!

FWIW, I bought a bunch of shirts yesterday to go with my skirts. I will post when I wear them.

Also- how do we wash these?? Dry clean? Line Dry? Hand wash?

I like that one too, but it's crotch length on me, so I'm swapping it.

I would love to find someone that has one that they dont want and would be willing to sell it so that i can try it out. I have been looking everywhere but have one more place to look. I really think they are cute. I didnt see any on the trading post but maybe i didnt go to the right spot does anyone know if there is one on here at all that is sell ing the skirts. I would love one that is patchwork but thought if i had one that maybe i could figure out how to make a patchwork type wrap skirt. I have always loved them anyway just the ramblings of a woman jeolous of all of you ladies that have these pretty skirts. Its ok i will just sit in a corner and throw a fit.
