Sew A Quick Skirt With Fun Waistband

Sew A Quick Skirt With Fun Waistband

Paper-bag waists were seen in several of the SS14 runway shows. The best way to wear this kicky skirt is with a fitted tee or a sheer or silk shirt tucked into it, to accentuate the narrowest point of your body. Use a body hugging long sleeved lace tee paired with chunky earrings for a dramatic look.

Download the free "Pick Pocket Skirt" pocket pattern to make this sweet skirt. Use washed linens for a structured look or go for something bold like green and black in a Japanese organic cotton. Play around with the hem line for a different look.
