I absolutely love wearing big, drapey wraps. I love the drama and flow they add to my outfit, and I really like to have them in multiple colors and designs. I decided I was tired of paying so much for them, and that I was going to try to make my own.
1 yard of fabric (recommend jersey)
Measure the distance between your shoulders, or where you would like for the wrap to hang. Divide this number in half. For example, if the distance is 18″, then the number you need to know is 9″.
Next, fold the fabric in half sideways (along the shorter end). Measure over the number you determined above (in this case, it would be 9″). Then, measure down 6″. Now, make a slit in the fabric which is 8 – 10″ long. See the photo below for details.
Make sure to cut through both layers of the material when you make your cut, to ensure they are exactly the same. Once you’ve cut all the way through, you’re ready to wear your new garment!
With one cut, and one yard of material, you can have an adorable, flowy wrap that works with just about any outfit! Dress it up or dress it down, and chose your own color or pattern! I’m addicted and may have too many of these soon, due to how easy these are to make!
