Transform a dated gathered skirt into a tulip wrap skirt. Perfect for comfortable days at home to out and about errands. I even like using this as a cover up for swimming at the beach or pool.  While the “before” isn’t bad by any means, it just felt a bit dated and poofy for my liking. You can create this with a yard of fabric as well. This refashion, pattern design was made easy using Dritz Style Design Ruler from the Design Ruler Trio. These rulers are essential for making pattern alterations, drafting, and designing your own patterns. They’re the perfect ruler for adding adjustments when up cycling or altering clothing. The skirt is made with 2 layers of fabric so it’s easy to master that curved hem.
