I made a simple wrap skirt out of the leftover fabric from my recent kimono jacket project. This happens to be an OOP Vogue Wardrobe pattern but any wrap skirt pattern would do. In fact you almost don't need a pattern. Or a regular straight skirt pattern that fits will do. Just eliminate side seams, sew darts as usual at the waist adding darts to shape the side seam curve, extend the fronts out to overlap as far as the waist dart. Then just turn under the edges and topstitch. I started without a back seam but decided it was too big and just seamed it in as much as I needed.

I like a wrap skirt with a wrap top. I think the designs work well together. Also, it only takes about a yard of fabric to make this type of skirt...something quick and easy to do with that leftover piece.
