Wrap Skirt Pattern Printing Instructions

This pattern has layers, so that you can choose to print only the size you need. To achieve this Adobe Reader must be installed on your machine or device. Adobe Reader allows you to click on the layers icon which will show you each size with an eyeball beside it. Click on the eyeball beside the size you do not want to print.

Before printing check that your printer is set to No scaling or Actual size. Set the Page orientation to Auto or Portrait. And then print page 1. Measure the 2” test square to see if it measures exactly 2”. If it does, print the remaining pages. Make sure you cut off the right and top margins of each printed page before assembling the pattern so it assembles correctly. You can use tape or school glue to adhere your paper pattern together. 

Wrap Skirt Pattern Assembly

There are 20 pages to print in this pattern. Use the quarter circles located at the corner of each page for perfect alignment.  Each row goes across for 10 pages. The finished length of this skirt is 26” for all sizes.  To determine if this length is right for you. Measure from your natural waist to your knee.  If your measurement is more than 26” you will need to add the extra length to the pattern piece. If it is less and you want to shorten the skirt, remove the difference from the length of the pattern piece. The skirt has a 3/8” seam allowance and  hem allowance
