This is the ultimate fashion accessory! One day it’s a wrap, then another day it’s a scarf, and then the next day it’s a cardigan and it doesn’t stop there! Best of all, if you don’t know how to sew but you for sure know how to use a pair of scissors then you can make this all by yourself. Look at you go being a do it yourself fashionista! And for roughly $20 or less, you are laughing your way past the department stores. Girl, you are looking good and doing it smart!

Materials:

  • 60” wide knit fabric cut to 46” in length
  • Rotary cutter or scissors
  • Cutting mat
  • Straight edge

Choosing the right fabric for this project is key. Using a knit will allow you to get away with no sewing for this wrap because the edges will not fray. However, if you chose a fabric that is not a knit you will end up having to hem all the edges. But least of all make sure the fabric is a bit elastic because this pattern was designed for an elastic fabric.

Using the rotary cutter (or scissors), cut the factory edges from the fabric and make sure the ends have been squared off. More often than not, the person who cuts the fabric for you at the store will not make straight cuts so you gotta fix that up!

To make the arm holes and deciding where to cut them, you need to measure the widest part of your body. Whether that’s your bust or your hips, just hold a tape measure up, approximate the width and divide that number in half.

Then on the piece of fabric running lengthwise, measure 6” down from the top and the divided number of your body width from the folded edge of your fabric. Make an 8-10 inch cut depending on the size of your arms and how large you want your armholes to be.

That’s it. Now the only thing you have to worry about is the endless possibilities you have to wear your new fashion creation!
