Twist Wrap Cover-Up

I’m always on the look-out for quick & EZ garments to sew, and this one is SIMPLE<  SIMPE< SIMPLE!!!   

Fabric:  2 yards of 45″ (could be wider if desire and fabric comes wider) soft fabric.  The ‘Twist Wrap” I purchased ($10)  was a poly sheer print.


Simple strapped holes at each upper end...

I held onto the ‘packaging’ on my purchase and share it with you below so that you can see how very SIMPLE it is!

To wear:  1.  Open and hold straps with hands.

2.  Place first strap over opposite shoulder.

3.  Place remaining strap over opposite shoulder.  Adjust straps to appropriate length as needed.

4.  To wear as a skirt, not the strap ends around waist.

As you can see in the Schematic above, the lengthwise grain of the 2 yard piece of fabric goes AROUND the body.  At each corner just cut out a curved piece.  Note the curve is 3″ deep and 5″ wide.  The curved line then measures about 7.5″.  Look closely at the next picture to see how the slider and circle (from an old bra!) add adjustment to the length of the strap for an adjustable fit .


a little circle hardware piece (could be a loop of fabric too), and a slider provide the adjustment needed at the shoulder.
