Wrap Skirts

My teen daughter had a request once again. More than one, actually. She had found a tutorial for a really nice skirt on YouTube and asked me to make one for her. And because I really like it that my daughter wants to wear clothes that are made by her mother, off we went again to buy the fabrics of preference. The tutorial didn't seem difficult, not as if it would take days to make one skirt, so we bought three different designs.

Instead of making a little production line, I made one skirt at the same time. Fortunately, because after making the first skirt, I found it to be a bit short. Also the skirt fell open with every slight lift of the leg. With a legging underneath my daughter saw no problem in wearing it, but my idea was to make the other two skirts just a tiny bit longer.

Not only did I give the two other skirts a bit more length, but I also made one of both sides of the skirt straight instead of rounded, so it wouldn't fall open.

My daugther loves all three of them, but due to its color (lila) the last one is her favorite.
