Wrap Skirt

This is a rather old project, but since I don't have photos of anything knew, I figured I would post it here for you! I made this skirt for my darling friend Dana, who lives in Alaska. She's one of the sweetest people I know, and I felt that this skirt fit her personality and style quite well!

It's made from the softest rayon, which has an impeccable drape. I love the pairing of the solid with the polka-dots. It's a two-layer adjustable wrap, with the polka dot layer peeking out on the bottom. It's made from circles, so it twirls marvelously!

Here is my (absolutely beautiful) friend modeling:

Heh, you can even see the frozen Alaska wilderness outside the window! Of course, these were taken last January, and it hardly looks like that anymore.

I love this style in a skirt, because they're extremely flattering, comfortable, and wonderfully adjustable!

Happy Birthday, Dana!! I hope you have an amazing year...filled with plenty of visits to Minnesota. :) Love you!


  1. Aww, Darling, how sweet of you! I feel famous! :) I'm not sure if it is just my computer or what, but the pictures on this post never loaded.
    I had a lovely birthday! When we chat next I'll tell you all about it! I hope you get that letter soon!!

  2. I'm sorry, darlings! The photos should be fixed... let me know if they aren't!

    & Dana, dear, such scandalous happenings in that letter! I'm still reeling. xD

  3. It works now! :)

    I know! And the story keeps getting more scandalous! Next time we talk I'll divulge all!


  4. Hello, Addie!

    What a beautiful skirt! I love anything with polka dots. And your friend is a great model!

    I went to Alaska once, and I will always remember my's such a stunning, unusual place.

    Can't wait for your next post!

    From your Aussie buddy,


  5. Your friend looks like that girl in that (I think) Verizon commercial. The one with the boy who travels and sends photos from his phone of himself in various cities?

    Lovely project. :)

  6. Thank you, Carla!! I know, polkadots are so cheerful! :) (And, isn't she?)

    Ooo! Whereabouts did you go? It is truly amazing there, absolutely unforgettable.

    Thanks, Becca! Haha, she kind of does in these photos! Although (& you can't really tell, as these are profile shots), she's always reminded me of Audrey Hepburn, too. :)


I love hearing from people! Feel free to leave thoughts, questions, etc. Thanks, dolls!
