What you will Need: How to Make a Wrap Top without a Pattern

  • 1 1/2 yds of fabric
  • Standard sewing supplies

Step 1: Cut Your Fabrics

Cut one piece of fabric 20″ x 36″ and a second piece that measures 12″ x 12″. Then cut one that measure 71″ x 4″ and a second that measures 59″ x 2″ for the straps. The first measurement may be longer and wider depending on your body size. Just make them proportionate.

Step 2: Hem the Long Sides of the Main Piece

Create a small hem by folding the long edges of the main piece twice to enclose the raw edges. Stitch.

Step 3: Create the Hole for the Head

Fold the main piece in Hal width wise, Then, fold it lengthwise. Clip the sides together so the fabric doesn’t move. Using a ruler or measuring tape measure 3 1/4″ from the folded corner down each side and the middle and mark creating an arc. Connect the marks. Cut out the arc to reveal a circle in the center of the main fabric. This is similar to creating the4 facing below.

Step 4: Create the Facing

Take the 12″ x 12″ piece of fabric and fold it in half twice. Marc a 3 1/4″ arc the same way you did on the main fabric. Then mark another arc 1 1/2″ below the first arc. Cut out the two arcs creating a 1 1/2″ strip of fabric to use for the facing. Zigzag stitch around the outer raw edge of the facing or use your serger if you have one.
