Make 9 Update #6

Cascade Wrap Skirt sewn and reviewed by Skirt Fixation

As the end of the year bears down on us, I’m trying to finish up and make record of my progress on my plans from the beginning of the year…also called my Make 9 (Outfits) goals. This time we sewed the gorgeous Cascade wrap skirt!

Skirt Outfit Skirt Fixation plans to sew in 2019

This outfit changed slightly from my original plans. The plan was to make:

Top Pattern: Top Pattern: Cheyenne Tunic by Hey June Patterns

Top Fabric: Robert Kaufman chambray from CaliFabrics

Skirt Pattern: Cascade Skirt by Megan Nielsen

Skirt Fabric: Heritage Rayon fabric from Art Gallery Fabrics

But here’s what I ended up with:

Top Pattern: Key Largo Top by Hey June Patterns

Top Fabric: Navy rayon challis from CaliFabrics

Skirt Pattern: Cascade Skirt by Megan Nielsen

Skirt Fabric: Heritage Rayon fabric from Art Gallery Fabrics

The reason I decided to switch this one up was happened due to envisioning the perfect Key Largo top made from rayon challis! And since the skirt fabric is comprised of rayon also, the two work really well together.

To make the Cascade wrap skirt even more dramatic, I added about 8 inches in the back and tapered it up to the front. This creates a very dramatic maxi-in-the-back version of the Cascade skirt. We’ve sewn the Cascade wrap skirt before, you can see our review here.

After lengthening the back, I really wished I would have lengthened the front as well. It seems to me that hi-low skirt have sort of passed their prime, do you think so? Lengthening it all the way around would have made it a fun maxi wrap skirt.

You can really observe the difference in the hemline from the side, as you can see in the photo above. It’s not that I don’t like it, it’s just that I don’t want to be the last one off the style train!

However, this Cascade wrap skirt has so much fun movement and swish and is so fun to wear, that it’s definitely not going to be hanging unworn in the closet!

In the above photo, the wrap ties swing out as I spin! There is a buttonhole where you pass one tie through, and tie them in the back. It’s very comfortable to wear!

I tacked the front opening a little farther up on the front tie so that there is more crossover in the front. And I’ll have to wear leggings underneath because, well, 9 kids! They see this skirt as an opportunity to climb underneath and wrap themselves up!

Another great way to utilize this Cascade wrap skirt would be as a swimsuit cover up. I can just imagine myself strolling along barefoot in the sand while wearing it, can’t you? Or is that just because it’s December?

As you may have observed, I added the ruffle sleeves to the Key Largo top again. Can’t stop, won’t stop! It’s the perfect companion to this flow-y skirt!
