Paper Bag Skirt

Very simple first time sewer's skirt pattern. Loved it.

Quick and easy sew

Super cute and easy. Pattern was easy to follow.

Easy and fun!

I've made the Paperbag Skirt several times now. Once as a gift to a friend and she adored the final outcome. As I always find with Ellie and Mac patterns, the instructions are super clear and easy to follow, making this a skirt that even complete beginners should have no trouble following.

Loved the finished product!

This design was definitely different than other Paperbag skirts I made, but it turned out so cute! My measurements came out to be a Large which I was surprised because I’m normally a Medium. It ended up being too big and had to take it in. I would definitely recommend this skirt though!

Easy sew

Enjoyed sewing the paper bag skirt, easy and looks amazing
