What are you most proud of? That I learned how to read an actual pattern and apply it.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch Diana's online session about working with a commercial pattern and then (this is what I really learned the most) take the time to fully understand the pattern before cutting AND take the time to mark all the little darts and what-not. Taking the time at the cutting stage will save tons of time throughout the project....trust me. lol. But I learned a lot! :)

I want to learn how to make wrap skirts.

The pattern I used here is from the Sew Everything Workshop book written by Diana Rupp. It has very detailed instructions for beginners (like me!). She also has an online workshop with crafty which I've also found VERY helpful. Good luck!

CUTE! Did you make the blouse, too? Love that asymmetrical neck - I'd never have thought of it, but it's GREAT with the 'sidedness' of the wrap, if you know what I mean.. I had one of these (must make another one!) an dI lived in it. It was basic black (my neutral), made in a high quality tightly woven sports fabric that could take abuse and yet still held its shape. It was a wee bit shorter than yours, so it needed some stiffness. The fabric was not at all like a knit, it was like you'd mated rip-stop with fine raw silk. You could mash it in a bag and the sports weave meant the wrinkles almost bounced out of it and it dried in no time.. I NEVER travelled w/o it!I wore it w winter tights & a suit jacket, the same tights w a pair of cute wellies & a bulky turtleneck, w bike shorts or thigh length tights & a tank for sporty occasions, added a nice funky fleece or knit cardi to that to go through to evenings, wore it with nice black stockings, pumps & a mohair or other nicely textured sweater for dressier occasions. Good lord.. it did EVERYTHING. The secret, I found, was to make it exactly the perfect length for your shape bod & legs. I had DH help me get those measurements for my files, and I've never looked back. I really do hope you enjoy yours as much as I did! :)

Very nice!!! I'm going through her book too. I made the pillow (from the video lesson), then the cardigan (but made in some cheap cotton...so it's more of a jammy shirt, now finishing up a robe ( not from the book)...but next making the yoga pants
