Wrap Skirts for Summer Wear

Summer time means easy to wear clothes like loose fitting tops and skirts that wrap. The wrap skirt is perfect to wear over a bathing suit when you are on the way to or from the beach, the pool, or anytime.

Simplicity 7699 from the 1970’s has a great retro, boho look that can go anywhere.

The suggested fabric for this pattern is for quilted fabrics or synthetic suede which are great for winter wear but too heavy for summer. To create a summer skirt use lightweight cotton or cotton blends.
