This Paper Bag Skirt tutorial is for a skirt with pleats on the waist, a belt, and belt loops. It is slightly tapered in at the thighs, usually a fairly short length. Depending on the look you want, you can play with different skirt lengths.
I found the paper bag skirt tutorial in the Create/Enjoy blog. The tutorial includes step by step illustrated instructions in how to make this cute skirt.
You’ll need 1-2 yds of medium weight fabrics such as twill or denim and a skirt zipper.
You can use olive green, orange, or brown for a safari look!
Use bright colors and match your paper bag skirt with a striped shirt (red, royal blue, or yellow)
For a nautical look, choose a fabric with stripes.
Or use lightweight wool suiting fabrics for a more formal look or if you want to use your paper bag skirt to work.
You can wear this skirt model anywhere depending on the fabric you use!
