The Rosemary Wrap is a true wrap skirt that sits on your natural waist and hugs and shows off your beautiful curves. It overlaps just the right amount to give you security and peace of mind even on windy days.
This pattern is designed to have most of the difference between your full hip circumference (bum) and your natural waist taken up by four elegantly positioned darts, and the remaining 2” (5 cm) or so taken up by pulling the ties tightly around your waist, causing beautiful drag lines to appear. It’s easy to grade between sizes and the wrapping nature makes it easy to get the right fit for your own body.
The Rosemary Wrap is delightfully quick to cut out and sew. It uses only two pattern pieces - the skirt and the waist tie. It wraps around and hugs you with pure fabric - no buttons or zippers.
The pattern comes with a curved hem and square hem option. Both options have lengthen/shorten lines to help you fine tune the length for your unique body and preference.
The instructions walk you through how to achieve a beautiful hem along a curve, and a clever, easy way to attach waist ties that are sharp and tidy.
Wearing this skirt feels like wrapping yourself up tightly in handmade love and care that brings a confidence as you walk boldly into the world. It’s a skirt that reminds you, “I am who I am” as you tackle the joys and trials of each day.
