Sarah, I'm with you on that one! No clue! I might try to add a slit to weave it through.....
Any help would be great!

M Ridenhour

This doesn't make sense; as one commenter noted, it's essentially tied together like an apron, and so there is a big slit where the two edges tie together.

The band needs to be about the same length as the skirt is wide, but the left hand tie needs to remain unsewn to the skirt for the last 6 or so inches. Then a button needs to be sewn on the inside so that the underlapped and overlapped portions can button together.

When worn, one would first button the botton, then tie the ties together. This way there is an overlap so that the entire thigh isn't exposed.

Does this make any sense? o_O

Chloe

I made my skirt 10" wider and also made the ties longer, I then made a button hole the size of the tie off center on one side of the band, wrapped the skirt around and pulled the tie through the button hole and tied it in the front. (if that makes sense) Turned out adorable!

Debbie Thompson

I would like to make this for my college-bound daughter, who just sent me the link to your website. Having sewn pleats before, I believe more information is needed to make them as pictured. I understand that they are made every 1.5", but how deep are they? 1/4"? 1/2"? It makes a difference and could be the reason for some of the confusion. Thanks.

evelyn

I have the same question.. how do you sewit together?

Sara

Is there a place where some of these questions are answered? (the ties/depth of pleats)

I'd love to figure out this beautiful skirt!

Such a pretty skirt! Thanks for sharing the tutorial.
I linked it in a serie I'm writing for my blog (http://rock-n-roll-stops-the-traffic.blogspot.it/2012/04/diy-from-head-to-toe-6-spring-edition.html#more), hope you don't mind! :)

I'm making this skirt and almost finished. I decided not to make it a wrap skirt 1)I don't know how to do buttonholes 2)it would be too much fabric around my waist. I'm going to sew it up the side, leaving about a two inch finished opening that will get covered up by the tie. I eliminated about 1/3 of the fabric. It's turning out very cute but I was frustrated for awhile there, I'm a beginner sewer. There's a pic of my almost finished skirt on my blog http://knittingirl40.com/?p=292&preview=true. I lined it,too.

I'm ready to do this skirt but also don't understand about how to close the wrap. It doesn't look like it's the traditional.
can you help me asap???

Karen

The directions are missing something...it ends up being an apron. Would like to try. But....

Joyce klein
