This simple wrap skirt has great style. It includes pockets, a curved hem, and a hem facing that makes for a clean and elegant finish. (The hem facing is also a great place to add a pop of contrast color.) The invisible closure on the skirt is made with buttons. You’ll love how this extremely versatile skirt dresses up or down.

- Suitable for light- to medium-weight woven fabrics with moderate drape like chambray, lightweight canvas, sateen, twill, wool suiting, crepe, and brocade. Use self fabric or a lightweight lining fabric for the pocket bag and hem facing.
Coordinating thread, four 1/2" or 5/8" buttons (or three buttons and one large hook and eye), and lightweight woven fusible or sew-in interfacing. Optional: In place of making the hem facing, you can use 1" single-fold bias binding or 1/2" double-fold bias binding. (If you use packaged bias binding, you will only need a piece of lining approximately 12" long by 20" wide for the pocket facing instead of the suggested amount of fabric for the facings.)
