After I made the long wrap skirt I wanted to make something short and fitting with all the convenience of a wrap skirt.A long wrap skirt is great with its waist ties and comfortable fitting but if you need some pizzazz in your dressing along with the convenience of a wrap skirt you got to sew this one. It is an easy sew skirt with three panels, and button and snap on button fasteners.
Asymmetrical mini wrap skirt Pattern
The pattern given here has 3 pieces – Back piece, Front piece and then the front flap.
Then you will have to cut out waist band piece, facing for the side edges and the bottom hem.
The front flap of this skirt is based on the front pattern but slightly longer. So when drafting the pattern keep the opened front pattern on a big piece of paper and trace around it. After your have traced the whole pattern, remove the front pattern and make the necessary markings as per the pattern below.
If you are adding a different fabric piece to the front panel half, remember that you should be adding half inch seam allowance to each piece.
