A Wrap That's a Snap


My first SWAP piece is complete.  It's a wrap skirt made from a black and white mini dot that is 100% wool. When I looked at the fabric I realized that I liked the "wrong" side of the fabric too.  So I made it reversible.  I used snap tape at the waist for my closure.  I copied this from a RTW skirt that's in my closet.  Split the snap tape somewhere near the center back and sew it going in the other direction.  I have always loved wrap skirts because I could adjust them with my weight by moving the buttons.  Now I don't even have to move the buttons...I just have to re-snap!  Now on to my SWAP pants...stay tuned.

Storyboard-First Draft

I have spent way too many hours making up this SWAP storyboard, but I learned a lot!  I have started my sewing and finished my first piece.  It's a wrap skirt drafted from two different RTW skirts that I love.  I will get some photos taken and post later...stay tuned!
