(click on "ways to wear," or search for Kariza vinatge online)

I remember seeing this versatile garment when I was younger, and (today!) after searching for it for AGES online, accidentally found it online!

I'd much rather make it in some colors that I like than choose some leftovers... it seems to be two skirt circles on top of each other. Can anyone else see what it is?

I know this seems like such a simple question, but I don't want to mess it up! Multiple heads are better than one :)

Looks like 2 circle skirts joined at the waist. Super simple to make.

Have you tried to sew a wrap skirt yet? They seem so simple, but......

I just tested out a half-circle skirt/wrap with a top "waist" of 45 inches out of an ugly georgette-like fabric. The waist stretched out to 48 inches--not really a problem. Its something else. Somethings off but I dont know what. Its not the fabric, its the cut. Maybe I wish the skirt had more swishiness or movement to it.

Do you think it would help to use a 3/4 circle or full circle? While Im almost positive the skirts use some kind of arc, I dont think theyre made with full circles -- they dont have any seams.
Are these type of skirts made with the skirt's waist part subtly gathered onto the tie?

I saw skirts like these being sold by really aggressive sales girls a couple weeks ago. One kiosk was affordable but it only had horrid (or damaged) fabrics. The other kiosk had beautiful fabric combos of all sorts, but the price was crazy. Even the "special price" was seventy-nine dollars--thats EACH! Ouch. I'd like to make one for summer.

It seams to be two skirts attached by the waistband. It lookes to me to be on a straight grain in the back due to the stripe in the fabric.
Onion has a wrapskirt just like that. It´s in one piece and you hem the sides of the front, and then attach the waistband. So fast and so simple and the different grains in the skirt really hugs your hips in a beautiful way.
The pattern number is 3021 and I know that both Åsa and myself have done reviews her om PR

Ooh! That skirt rocks! What a perfect swim suit coverup or vacation skirt to pack. I need to duplicate this too. Seems to make it two layer, it needs to be made out of something thin and slinky like (silk,etc) so you can tie that up one of the layers for a scarf like look.

Iris impressions has the same skirt. I saw many kiosks in Vegas selling theses skirts for $59 to $99. All were made in silk or rayon. I am in the same boat. I have looked everywhere for a pattern and I am about to buy one to deconstruct. It looks really easy but the "swing" is not right on what I have tried. Has anyone found a pattern?

I just bought one of these skirts last week and then stumbled upon this thread. The one I got is by ''Ethnix'' and was just $15. The label says 100% silk, but I'm suspicious of that! I got this specifically to copy the pattern myself, but haven't done it yet. The ends appear to be on the grain, and it's indeed a half circle. I stood on a step ladder to get this pic of it all laid out! HTH

That's a really pretty skirt. I've seen people wear these before, but not for me any more.
