It is no secret that I love to sew, but workwear is a new adventure for me. So, when I saw that Beth of Sew DIY was looking for pattern testers for a wrap skirt, I knew it was the perfect opportunity to make something versatile and be able to put my own personal style on it. Allow me to introduce to you my very own version of the Nita Wrap Skirt!
This skirt was super simple to make and the pattern was really easy to follow! The pattern itself comes with three optional lengths – mini, midi and maxi – and three different waist closure options – button, D-ring or tie waist. I went for a mini with a button closure (I have a love affair with buttons) and used a lightweight floral linen for the material.
The only alteration I made was to add a small hidden snap about halfway down the front slit to make it more appropriate for work. (I can’t have the skirt gaping open in front of the students!) I have to say that absolutely love how easy it is to throw on this wrap skirt and dress it up or down. I also love the faux wood grain button I chose made from recycled plastic!
The details: light speckled sweater (American Eagle) // white camisole tank (Target) // linen wrap skirt (handmade – get the pattern here!) // gold slip-on’s (American Eagle via Marshall’s) // blue quartz stud earrings (Ann Taylor Loft)
I have a quick confession to make – the theme for today’s Workwear Wednesday is actually wrap dresses… but I hate wrap dresses! Okay, let me amend that by saying that I have yet to try on a wrap dress that I actually like, BUT I am in love with my handmade wrap skirt, so I hope that qualifies!!
What about you, are you a fan of the wrap dress?? Would you wear a Nita wrap skirt?
