I made a wrap skirt with a mod bird!

I made this wrap skirt. I have been itching to make one. I have looked all over for patterns in the internet. And I should say I did find a few of them, I just was not ready to do all the math there was to figure it out. I need a pattern. I quickly scanned threw McCalls patterns and Yes, pattern M5430. I made version B. Now I did do a bit of altering to this pattern. In the new style of wrap (or how they offer the pattern) they have a waist band and then you make ties using the fabric. I did not want that. I wanted my wrap skirt like the old school style. So that is how I made it. I did not add the waist band and I just used binding all the way around the skirt. I will have to make a button hole in the back of the skirt's waist line on the binding so I can easily slip the tie threw. Its not necessary but I want to try button hole making next. Oh and I won't try it on my new skirt. hehe Scrap fabric! This is reversible. I used my little birdy again. I really adore this skirt! (gush)

(you can use that bird too for your appliques its for free in my free pattern/scan/tutorial section to the left under the pattern wall cozy.)
