Glam Wrap Skirt

This dramatic ankle-length skirt is as simple to make (and wear) as a sarong.

  1. Buy 2 to 2 1/2 yards of 60-inch wide silk taffeta.

  2. Finish the edges by folding them over and securing with iron-on Stitch Witchery, or by using a sewing machine.

  3. Hold one corner of fabric against your left hip, then wrap the fabric twice around your body.

  4. Grab a small handful of fabric about 6 inches in from the corner you just wrapped around your body and double-knot it to the corner you're holding against your hip.

  5. Adjust the skirt so the draped portion is in the back.
