The Folkwear Tibetan Chupa pattern is based on a wrapped jumper with a centuries-long history in Tibet. It is traditionally worn with added layers of aprons, woollen sashes, and a panel coat (like the 118 Tibetan Panel Coat). Worn alone or with a blouse, the Chupa is a beautiful contemporary garment. The pattern also includes a version for a Chupa-inspired wrap skirt.
- asymmetrical wrap front
- front and back shaping darts
- wide neckband
- simple faced armholes
- unique side extensions that wrap around the back to tie in front
The resulting silhouette is slim, yet the extensions enable enough leg room to make walking easier than most wrap skirts.
Both the Chupa and Chupa-inspired wrap skirt can be made in the traditional ankle length or below the knee length.
