Serve in a contemporary twist on classic streetwear with this wrap miniskirt designed specifically for the fabulous drag queens out there. Crafted for the edgy vibe of thick denim or leather-like materials, this skirt provides a unique silhouette that's both stylish and practical. With hidden Velcro in the front for a seamless finish, this piece is sure to turn heads wherever you go.
Begin by assembling the two back pieces. Place them right sides together and sew along the center back curve.
Open up the joined back pieces and, with the wrong side up, press the seam open using an iron to ensure a neat finish.
With the right side of the back piece facing up, top stitch on both sides of the center back seam, about 1/4 of an inch.
Take one of the front pieces and place it over the back piece, with their right sides together. Sew them along the side seam.
Open the sewn pieces and, on the wrong side, press the side seams open with an iron.
Turn the piece right side up and top stitch on both sides of the side seam, 1/4 inch away from the seam. Repeat this process for the other front piece.
Repeat the steps to construct both an outer shell and lining for the skirt.
With the right sides of the shell and lining facing up, sew heavy-duty Velcro onto the marked Velcro placement guides. Depending on the size, you might need two strips of 1.5 to 2-inch thick Velcro for a secure fit.
Place the shell and lining with their right sides together. Stitch around the sides and top edges, leaving a gap at the bottom to turn the skirt right side out.
Turn the skirt right side out through the opening left at the bottom. After ensuring the bottom seam allowances are tucked inside, press the edges then topstitch all around the skirt. Make sure to tuck in the bottom seam allowance to sew the bottom gap closed.
