Now that spring is officially here, it’s finally time to make some transition pieces! I’ve been wanting to create this convertible wrap for so long and with the warming weather, I get so excited to make new outfits.

This project took about thirty minutes to complete and is really simple. The creativity and elegance of this top comes from how you decide to wrap and style it. There have been lots of convertible wrap tops lately, but I created this project in a way that mirrors some of the YouTube tutorials so you won’t have to recreate your own draping styles.

Supplies:

My supply lists are now shoppable for your convenience! Just click any aff. link below to get everything you need to complete this tutorial.

Steps:

Gather your supplies and clear about a half hour before we get to work! You are going to be amazed how easy this is!

Step 1: Cut Your Fabric In Half

Chances are, when you bought your stretch fabric, it came on a bolt and was folded in half. You can keep your fabric in one piece to make a dress if you’d like, but for this project, I cut the 2 yards of fabric in half hot-dog style to create two 30 inch x 1 yard strips of fabric. Set 1 strip aside.

Step 2: Cut two 18″ Pieces

Now that you have two 30″ x 36″ pieces of fabric, lay 1 piece out on a table and cut two 18″ sections from it. This will make up the two sides of your convertible wrap.

Step 3: Create Your Armholes

Next, lay your large piece of fabric out flat. Lay one 18″ section on either side.

Measure 10″ up from the bottom of your fabric and 10″ down from the top of your fabric and pin. Repeat on the other side. I like to mark my measurements with two needles side by side to prevent me from sewing through them when chalk is out of reach.

Essentially, we have divided the side of your fabric in thirds and left an opening (about ten inches) in the center to use as a sleeve.

Step 4: Sew Together

Lastly, sew your ten inch marked sections together. You should have four ten inch areas to sew which creates two large holes on either side of your shirt. It might not look like much but this is where the fun begins……..
